Hi, Benny!

Hmm, my understanding is that the preferred naming scheme is one of the
following, but not both:

1. Bare name for latest plus versioned names for older ones.

2. Versioned names for all.

What you're suggesting doesn't sound like either of those (i.e., it
sounds like "bare name for older plus versioned name for latest").  For
relevant comments on package naming, see these "multimedia/vlc{,2,21}"
