The usual solution to this is the 'release version', which is used in
most (all?) other packaging systems. namely, you have foo-1.2-4, where 4 is the
release version which documents what version the meta-info is. For
instance, when bugs are fixed in the rpm spec file or deb package that
number is bumped and it is independent of the underlying packaged
softwares release. It would be very useful if hackage could support
something like this.
