Can we get some little clarification here what actually happened?

Removing the dfsg1 suffix implies that the upstream tarball changed
from the previous upload which would normally mean that the upstream
version has to be bumped as otherwise it couldn't have changed.

I assume that version 1.10.1 was already dfsg-clean after all and
Martin just forgot to remove the suffix for the -1 version in
experimental? Am I correct?

In any case, I'd still be in favor bumping the upstream version
as adding such weird suffixes will just confuse users and other
developers even more. It shouldn't be too difficult to make some
other useful changes to justify a 1.10.2 release, should it?
