You must have missed the part of the documentation that says:

:    *_Never_* try to set the interface numbers so that they correspond
: to the release number of your package.  This is an abuse that only

(not my emphasis)

The documentation describes in detail how you are supposed to set the
three version fields.  Anything else will be trouble.
