; might work, though it'd have to be escaped on the command line (manually because you'll probably either want to complete foo--devo--1.0 or foo--devo;bug69--1.0) and we already get enough complaints about =tagging-method and =build.

Please, not "&" or ";"!

In fact, is it a programmatic requirement to have it in the package-version? For the described usage, I think it'd work fine to have it as a version variable. (e.g. version-variable: upstream-name "tla--devo--1.3")

This has the potential advantage of supporting fully-qualified revision names.
