[alpine-aports] Older versions

Good evening,
What would be the best to have an older version of a package?

For example, I need swig v2.x.x:

1. Should I contact the maintainer and ask him to downgrade?
2. Should I create a new package (call it swig2)?
3. Is it OK to "embed" the particular library version in the package that
requires it?

KInd regards,
José M.
