An important point here is that we don't want to lock down version m.n
of an extension *until it's shipped in a release*.  If we make several
changes in a given extension during a development cycle (some of them
possibly just bugfixes to a previous change), we don't want our tools
forcing us to treat each of those as an upgrade scenario.

This means that any restriction should only apply in the _STABLE branches,
not in master.  Not sure how to do that.
