Look the mailing list archives for subject '[packaging] Debian packaging' [3]

Somehow I managed not to see it on the first glance.
Thanks for getting me straight.

That's possible, indeed. But I tend to think that officially releasing 
properly versioned packages would be better. The more officially-looking
ebuild naming would be, the more potential users will be inclined to try it out.

By the way, I think it would be good to notify Gentoo-Java team [2]
when we'll have working source builds.

I based my reasoning on Ebuild HOWTO [1]. According to the rules,
'-M2' suffix will be parsed as part of the name, rather than version.
Using M2 as suffix to some number (e.g. 0.1M2) is also not allowed 
(only single-letter suffixes are allowed).
