If you give it the same name as the eventual official ones, the package
may not be properly upgraded when the official ones come out.  For the
most part the packaging tools are fairly good about that, but I wouldn't
want to risk it.

I'd instead generate a changelog entry (dch may be helpful here) with a
version number like 0.0.025-0daily20060423.  That will ensure that the
version number for each daily build increases, but that they'll all be
less than the next official release.
