Interesting idea -- so this would mean that OPAM has to remap
upstream versions into something that is a semantic version.

Does Elm eliminate this by mandating that libraries should
"natively" all be semantically versioned?  We can't do this in
OCaml today since there are too many upstream packages with
their own versioning notions.
