of course, maintainer input would be essential. For simple utility
libraries we could get away with file compare.

However even in different versions there may be fully compatible code.
If a package only uses still compatible code, why not save users a

semantic versioning as it is, is very restrictive (or misleading if
versions are not upped for 'small changes').
