We discussed this on IRC yesterday, but to clarify, in terms of
Debian-format version numbers, 1.0rc1 has never been a lesser version
than 1.0. The syntax "1.0~rc1" was added in 2002 to cope with
pre-release versioning like this, although it's regrettably difficult to
work that out automatically from latest-tag in recipes and tends to
require manual handholding.
