 And this is a problem because? Please notice that the filename of a deb
package doesn't contain the epoch neither, and this is the reason why
the epoch isn't relevant for unique version numbers, it's just relevant
for sorting.

Because it's easier to build an URL just from version number,
without stripping the epoch.

I have a bug about it, too.


I see this report doesn't qualify for 'normal', probably 'wishlist'
suits better.
