I think that leaves two options:

(a) change version objects to special case "-1, set by" as an
allowed "lax" version (comparing equal to ????)

(b) WONTFIX -- and leave people encouraged to switch to

I understand your feeling regarding changing this close to
5.14 and feel even more strongly about changing and core
internals of version objects this close to 5.14.
