If 2.7.0 doesn't actually exist yet, though, it's a bit disingenuous
to release a package that indicates that it is 2.7.0.  I recall that
this has caused problems with various upstream developers in the past.

In the case of dejavu, a snapshot is being packaged and the naming
guidelines are quite clear on what the package should be named in that
case.  Unfortunately fixing it now would require that the version go
backwards (or something horrible like an epoch bump).
