Not really. Just implement both "category--branch--version" and
"category--series--branch", but deprecate the former. tla could detect which
one was in use because "version" (or "series") is composed only of numbers
and periods while "branch" is almost certainly alphabetical.

Older projects could continue to do what they're doing, while newer
projects could use the clearer syntax.

Be well,
