The package was never on the server, i.e., it was never released.  If
a package ever touches cygwin.com then, yes, you have to bump the
version any time you make any change no matter how tiny.

I don't care if the package is released with -57 release number but I
don't want it to get into the common knowledge pool that it is a
requirement because it isn't.
