I'm afraid there's no way to do this.  The usual approach is to simply
append something like +repack to the upstream part of the version (so
you'd end up with "1.34.23+repack-..."); you can drop this suffix after
the next upstream release.

While you're here, I'd strongly recommend changing your version scheme
anyway to use "-ubuntu16.04.1" etc. instead of "-xenial1" etc.; this is
because "xenial" sorts after "bionic", so anyone upgrading from xenial
to bionic with your PPA enabled will incorrectly not be upgraded to the
bionic build.  Changing the upstream version is a good opportunity to
fix this.
