The "a" suffix has previously been used to indicate CD-only rebuilds -
i.e. where no changes were made on the archive side (with one exception
during etch's stable lifetime). As this involved a change to the
archive (albeit a minor one) we decided to use a version which
distinguished it from a CD-only change.
