I wasn't aware that there was a yui3 package in progress. I'd prefer to
stay with 3.5.1 instead of 3.6.0.

Fair enough, I'd still like to keep a versioned installation path if
possible, however, I guess it is not a requirement. However, the reason why
I was looking into have several minor versions is because, as I was told,
hence requested, is that between the usage of yui3 minor versions some
things were deprecated and changes were needed to be made at the code.
Because of this, it made sense to keep minor version so rdepends won't
break. However, I believe that overtime, having minor versions could become
a little tedious to maintain. Nonetheless I would like to still keep
the possibility in place.

I'll take a look at the git repo and help where I can.
Thanks for the input.
