For Debian, the best solution is generally for some snapshot taken on
20120917 of source from the 1.6 branch after 1.6.1 to be versioned as
1.6.1+20120917. This sorts after 1.6.1 but before 126.96.36.199.
You can use - instead of + provided that you're very careful with how you
use version numbers, but it can cause some confusion since - is also used
to separate the upstream version from the Debian packaging version.
