Okay. I still need to get clear in my head the relative trade-offs
between being able to install and maintain multiple versions at once
vs the simplicity of a single package name. Much of it probably depends
on the frequency of releases relative to Debian's stable release cycle,
as well as your expectation for the support of older branches.
