What's the best way of numbering the the squeeze-updates version? I'd
prefer avoiding to add something like ~squeeze, +squeeze or the like in
order to not make the version number of the prebuilt modules even more
complicated. The number space after 195.36.31-6 (i.e. 195.36.31-6 ..
195.36.31-99999) is free and won't be needed by unstable. So we
shouldn't destroy the possibility to use this for squeeze by doing some
imprudent upload of 195.36.31-7 to unstable. Unless it would be allowed
to upload 195.36.31-7 to unstable and 195.36.31-8 to
squeeze-proposed-updates afterwards.
