and here we have another reason to punish anybody using versioned dependencies. ;-) (of course upstream needs to be hit, too)
Blaming this on versioned deps is punishing the messenger; this package wouldn't upgrade without a force option either because the same version comparison is used everywhere...
You did notice the smiley? I know this wasn't fair in this case and not too serious. But anyway, I would prefer add the force flag and add the (stupid) upstream version instead of making your own up.
The force flag is a big ugly crap. I find sanitizing upstream version to be much.. saner. Or figure out a way to have both a sane version for pacman and the insane upstream version.
