[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#863406: chromium-driver: Follow upstream version numbers

Package: chromium-driver
Version: 58.0.3029.96-1
Severity: wishlist

It is rather confusing that the chromium-driver package has a version
number like 58.x.y.z, when the upstream version for chromedriver, and
the version reported by /usr/bin/chromedriver is actually 2.27.

Would it be possible to extract chromium-driver from the chromium
source package and use the upstream version numbers?
