Something that could help with that: we plan to add something like
debian/watch in metadata.xml. This should allow to specify a regexp to
mangle versions (sed like syntax: /match/replace/). For some specific
packages, we also already have specific handlers (cpan, php, pypi,
etc...) which have specific version mangling functions.
