[arch-general] How stable are the new version number formats on eg. filesystem, usbutils, etc.

  Updating different minimum dependency package version info for tde PKGBUILDs,
I note there have been a number of 'version number format' changes for various
packages. E.g.:

filesystem 0.x.y-z ==> 2013.05-2
usbutils 0.x.y-z ==> 006-1

  There is a big difference going from filesystem>=0.7.3 to filesystem>=2013.
When I run across packages like this where the version has changed format -- Are
they likely going to stay with the new format? Or will they likely revert back
to major.minor-rel numbers at some time?
