This would be a snapshot that comes *before* 2.0.6 (in Debian's version 
ordering: The tilde means "version x~y is earlier than version x"

Not sure if that's what you mean - as I've said I think it's more logical to 
use the last released version and increase it instead of using the next 
version with a tilde. But that's just a matter of taste in the end. In any 
case: sure, using an existing tool instead of writing your own code is 
better in most cases.  I don't use git, so I just didn't know git-dch.

Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.  You discover
truth everytime you use it.
