A heuristic that this change is done consistently is for example when
the SO version is different from the package version (e.g.
libgcrypt11 for libgcrypt-1.5.0). The antipole is that it's not done
at all. So when the SO version == package version, it sure is going
to raise some eyebrows, and perhaps jumping a gun when it cannot be 
established that the numbering is not a mistake (and with NoMachine 
being virtually unavailable...)
