What is the recommended way of versioning bindings? If the

is not an
option because it potentially collides with the binding for
version of the target.
The problem is locking the version of the Dub package to the
same version of the library the bindings are for. In you're
example I would do something like "1.2.3+1.2.3". If you need
fix a bug in the bindings you increment as usual to
"1.2.4+1.2.3". Anything after the plus sign is basically
metadata that is ignore by Dub
In your suggestion, once version 1.2.4 of the target library is
released, the first binding version targeting that would then be
1.2.4+1.2.4 or 1.2.5+1.2.4 or what?
And more importantly, how can a user of the binding then depend
on the latest binding version of a specific target library
version (for example the latest bindings for 1.2.3)?
