It is a little bit different for Rust packages, as described in the

to be used at any given time, so all package definitions should have a versioned suffix. 
The versioned suffix is the left-most non-zero digit"
If I understand this correctly, one should keep all packages from 0.1 to 0.46 
(for example, if the versions are numbered like this). But from 1.1 to 1.46 you 
only keep the last one.

This is correct. Anyhow, please keep in mind that the variable name for the 1.x package will stay "some-crate-1".

This follows the idea of semantic versioning, which rust follows.
