allow to respect binNMUs when matching binary packages and source packages

Detailed description
In a repository of binary packages and source package, a source package of version X can have any number of binNMUs X+bY. Example:

(W)Sources: Cannot find source package src:dose3 3.1.3-3+b2 associated to the binary package amd64:apt-cudf (= 3.1.3-3+b2)
(W)Sources: There exist other versions (3.1.3-3) of the source package src:dose3 in the repository
Fatal error: exception Sources.NotfoundSrc

The source package version 3.1.3-3 will stay the same until the source package is updated. Until then, the binNMU counter will just keep increasing with every needed rebuild due to a newer OCaml version.

It should be possible to automatically detect a binNMU version and properly associate binary and source packages without throwing warning or fatal errors.

This is not a problem anymore because dose3 correctly reads the source version of the associated source package from the Source: field of the binary package. Because of the Source: field and its version number (which is stated in brackets in case it's different from the binary package version, §5.6.1), no further version mangling is needed.
