I use this:
arts-trinity - 4:14.0.0-0debian0+r49+pr4~wheezy

14.0.0 is the TDE version, 0debian0 is Debian specific and normally
increments on any required rebuilds, r49 is the TDE source revision of the
arts module, pr4 is the Debian packaging revision of the arts module, and
~wheezy is the distro version's codename.

We can try, but I'll play it by ear. :-)  I have no desire to change the
Debian scheme, as it might badly break upgrades for Debian/Ubuntu users.
