Sorry for bikeshedding but relying on repository migration for
rolling out important bugfixes is not what I'd usually do: if
some additional glitches occur, the fixes might get delayed,
and even if not, some folks will be slow to realize the change
of location (this can be helped: http://tinyurl.com/cygadyb).

If the scripts are that sloppy it's the wrong way to fix it
upstream (I maintain a few hundred packages in ALT Linux).
Even if that's a problem, there's a practice of putting up
"a" releases, like 0.8.2a to hint that 0.8.2 was flaky.
But someone's -0\.[0-9]\.[0-9]\. will choke either. :)
