No. Really. You need to step back and think before you try to solve a

No it doesn't. _pre1, _pre2 etc does not accurately represent how
upstream do releases.

Uh... There's no merging involved. And GLEP 54 solves the entire thing.
It lets you have foo-scm tracking master, foo-2.0-scm tracking the 2.0
branch and foo-1.0-scm tracking the 1.0 branch, and the ordering all
works correctly. It's the only solution anyone's come up with that gets
this right.
