I had thought the preferred way was to suffix the internal version
with '/pinned' rather than suffixing and reverting the user-facing
package name, but hopefully the need to do this is significantly
reduced with the switch from core-updates and staging to feature

If it's an issue of stability or compatibility then '-next' is the
sensible approach.
