I don't like the version numbers in the variables either, but I think
it would complicate the stuff too much if we tried to come up with a
regexp that gets us a 'better' variable name; after all, it's not that
a major part of the packages will use the functionality at all...
In the ghostscript case, the diff should probably be better like
so that changing that variable gets us the updated distsite
automagically. Thanks for the note.
