DevRef's information on version numbers could do with some work in
general.  It's spread out around various places and often isn't inline
with practice, or even self-consistent - it variously suggests the
+debNuX scheme for NMUs for stable / testing, where it hasn't previously
been used, +codenameX for stable-sec and codenameX for t-p-u; the aim is
to unify all of those in to a standard form.

In general one isn't concerned whether an upload to stable or t-p-u was
a maintainer upload or not; the purpose of the version number is largely
to indicate that the upload was made to a suite other than unstable /
