I like it. For the base number, how about we add a stub package that 
identifies the base number? Right now this would be 

This would allow us to deal with package removals, i.e., when we remove 
a package we manually bump that version by the version of the removed 
package which also allows us to add a comment along the lines of 
"removed package foo bar; bumped base version by X". Without something 
like this we're risking to run backwards in versions during removals.
