I'm afraid it's not possible. V2 believes that dash separate values of
"subfeatures", and "cpp"/qpp" are just convenient names you use, so they must
be joined to the version number with underscore. I'm afraid this is a bit
hard to change at the moment.

Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to ask. In addition to
email, alternative ways to reach me are Jabber
