I'm also the developer of an "alpha-version" library. I would suggest in 
this case to add for example the exact date as package version (e.g. 
0.1.20071110)  and make all dependent packages dependent on exactly this 
version. I know that all dependent packages then need an upload (with an 
incremented package revision at least) with this new dependency to get 
build again, but IMHO there is no way around.
