For the most part it seems to get upstream / portage versioning right,
but occasionally you get miss-matches for some reason.

It would be nice to allow to provide some mapping mechanism that
existed on the overlay itself to inform euscan how to map upstream
versions to downstream ones, but implementing that would be far too
complex I feel.

Instead, it would be nice to have a mechanism in the interface to set
a "Upstream version is" value for each package if euscan can't tell.

Ie:

http://euscan.iksaif.net/package/dev-perl/HTML-TreeBuilder-LibXML/

Upstream is 0.71 , portage is ( normalised ) to 0.710.0 , and these
are in fact the same version. So in 0.710.0 , it would be nice to be
able to set the upstream version manually to 0.71 so that euscan no
longer reported it as outdated.

http://euscan.iksaif.net/package/dev-perl/XML-Tidy/

1.8 == 1.8.B59BrZ
1.8 == 1.8.B2AMvd

( Upstream for those 2 packages have a versioning scheme tantamount to
intolerable cruelty.
