Comment(by maphew):

 Thanks for updating the archive name so existing apt installs can carry

 It might wise to be stricter on package name convention. Setup.exe is just
 fine now without the p-ver#, but what would happen with a new version? It
 might force updating setup.hint manually instead of relying on the
 automatic "what is current and new" algorithm.

 I took the opportunity to understand and document the regex filename-to-
 version matching, checked in at r1189. I didn't get as far as attempting
 to add "assume no p-ver# means ver# 0". The parsing is spread across 3 or
 4 functions and it really should be in one, with names that mean
 something. I'm not up to that yet ;-)
