Interesting, thanks.  However, upstream starts each new minor version at
p1, so it looks like:

    7.2p1 → 7.2p2 → 7.3p1 → etc

which works fine for pacman.  The problematic behaviour for pacman would

    7.2p1 → 7.2p2 → 7.3 → 7.3p1 → etc

In the case of coq, I guess this is something that should ideally be fixed
