Agreed. Additionally, we never fully "agreed" on this whole decimal
pkgrel thing, and I, for one, find it annoying to see
"foobar-" - it's a major wtf moment. Not only should the
pkgrel reflect _our_ version, not upstream's version, but we should
try to stick to integers to avoid confusion, and it's not like we're
going to run out of integers any time soon
