When pondering future implementation possibilities, it would be nice
to have the build service modifiy the release number by appending its
build revision to the release, not just overwriting it; e.g. X.n where
n is added by the buildservice. For all the packages I have in the
buildservice (currently, anyway), the release number as submitted is
the subversion repository version number; I'd like to keep that intact
in some way so that I can do a reverse mapping from a package back to
the specific version in subversion.

(I'd prefer to avoid adding my repo version to the Version number for
the package, if possible.)
