No, that'll just make the package obsolete itself, as 20110000
is considered to be higher than 0.8.0 by RPM.

I'm usually cautious enough to cope with such situations by
naming snapshots 0.0+2012.... but alas, I didn't in this case.

No good solution to this situation now, except to always include
the timestamp, e.g. Version: 20121224+0.8.0
