Bug#177688: apt 'W: Did not understand pin type version'

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.4
Severity: minor

I've an entry for the latest wine-debs in my sources list. Those packages all 
have an version like this: Version: 1:0.20030121.034247

Now I've set my preferences file to
Package: *
Pin: version 0.2003*
Pin-Priority: 999

And: It works ! Apt updates my wine-environment daily. Now the "minor" bug 

apt shows me this warning :/
W: Did not understand pin type version

But it should (and it does !) understand the pin type 'version'.
Should, because it's in the apt-howto.

For example, to keep package sylpheed that I have modified to use 
"reply-to-list" at version 0.4.99, I add:

     Package: sylpheed
     Pin: version 0.4.99*
