So long as the different versions don't conflict you don't actually
need a new review to package a different version - there is now an
automatic exception for that:
But wouldn't a single package in fact be preferable, as
it'll be simpler than maintaining multiple packages:
- Everything visible in one spec file.
- Only a single search to show all bugs.
- Single method to find all supported unison versions.
- Mass rebuild once.
