Support "epoch" in APKBUILD, like it works in PKGBUILD
Sometimes software needs to follow a new versioning scheme, which would make newer releases appear to have a smaller version than older releases.
Arch Linux has the “epoch” field in their PKGBUILDs:
It would be nice to have this in Alpine too (abuild is makepkg light after all ;)).
(This does not have any priority to me right now, otherwise I would work towards implementing this in apk-tools, if it is desired.)
