[wix-users] Is there a way to allow major upgrade if version is the same but product code is different?

I'm randomizing the product ID with each build ("*") but I want to leave
the revision at 0. We may do multiple builds internally but when we publish
to the client the revision number should be 0.

AllowSameVersionUpgrades="yes" seems like it was designed for this, but it
does not work and two instances end up in ARP. I assume this is because the
version is the same.

Is there anything I can do to augment this so that a major upgrade happens
without changing the version?
