I am also -1 for separate directories per version

Why do you want to parse strings which describe versions?

If you want to impose on anyone how they should version their artifacts?
There is zero % of chance for that.

Version can be anything like:

build-994 or 1.2.alpha-5 or 4-1.1

and we should just decide where string which describe a version is included
in the URL and stop there.
