We won't remove packages from a pocket because of this, but we could
limit the manual check to a small list (of which checking the version
number would be one). While we can't yet remove packages from pockets
when they have been accepted, it's certainly possible to reject packages
from the unapproved queue.

This might be a problem, but this could be worked around by removing
packages from -proposed after a month (or so). This would require
fixing the "remove packages from non-release pockets", but fixing that
should be relatively easy.
