Maybe I'm a bit slow today, but I still do not see what an increased
PKGREVISION buys us.
The "problem" does not prevent the software from working if it is
installed right now. There is no new functionality in the software
itself. When you update, you will have to deinstall in any case and if
you forget to modify ParserDetails.ini you will get a checksum mismatch.
The changes I introduced will not alter any of those facts for the
Increasing PKGREVISION just changes the package name and people may
decide (or their tools like pkg_chk decide for them) to update and get
the checksum mismatch earlier rather than later.
