And I pointed out the syntax <-> precedence permutations
mostly to illustrate that even if nothing else is done,
what is currently checked in on HEAD is immensely more general
than what used to be there.

E.g. you already know that OpenPKG can drop D and V comparison
quite easily with the existing implementation, no fuss, no muss.

And Per Oyvind is just starting to figure out that Distepoch:
can be 1st (and most important) to be compared. How Disttag:
fits into the mess has yet to be specified into syntax.
