Gentlemen and Ladies,

 I have a madly insane idea - when bug fixes/updates are applied to a
project - simply HIDE or REMOVE the unpatched version from the end user's
accessible locations.

I know that  the UNPATCHED version needs to remain, for rollbacks or other
badly done "updates" but, for heaven's sake if you insist on keeping the
unpatched version, call it "PackageName - Unpatched" or better yet give the
patched version a new name.

For, example: LibreOffice1 (the original version) LibreOffice1.1 (an updated
version) and finally, (LibreOffice1.1.1 -the version with all the latest
bug-fixes, enhancements, etc.).

When other platforms are also supported: refer to the program by appending
the name of the platform to the package name, i.e LibreOffice1.1.1 for
Android LibreOffice1.1 for Windows, etc.
