This is problematic when there are updates to the 0.7 or 0.6 packages.
But to my understanding this is not the case. The 0.7 and 0.6 branches
are dead. Right?
There are also other voices saying that the latest version should be
"unversioned" in the package name and only when there is an active maintenance
of the previous version and reverse dependencies, then a separate
source package needs to be crafted for the old version.
If there is someone to blame, then please add Michael Koch to the list

I am not aware of any reverse-dependency. It can go. My original understanding was that (presuming an upwards compatibility of the
API) that there should possibly be a 0.8 version of the 0.7-named package.

You two are overqualified to deal with the issue. Whatever you decide
I can live with. Just ensure that there is a versioned jar and if there
is an unversioned binary package name, then this should provide a
symbolic link to the respective versioned jar.
