Hi Uwe,

I was thinking about this too and I've to admit that my wish is
selfish :). IOW I dislike it, but I've to agree, that the increment of
the package release is the correct way to go. To be honest, assumed I
should have build a package that differs to the default PKGBUILD, I
anyway need to compile upgrades from ABS. It's just a minor annoyance
that I might have to do it for a package, I've got already installed,
OTOH I seldom edit PKGBUILDs and I never edited a .install.

Hopefully everybody agrees with Rashif's paragraph. Now I'm convinced
that n+1 is what should be done in the future.
