Ooorrrr, you could change the id on the "previous" version to whatever 
is next available and insert the "publish" version with the old id. 
That'd not break anything.

Tracking the "revisions" would, as you point out, be difficult. You'd 
need some way to link "this used to be 1,2,4,6" -- a post meta array of 
the "previous" id's might do that well enough.
