[PyQt] Versioning wheels

Starting from pyqt5 version 5.7 wheels now include 2 versions. Recent ones
look like this
:  PyQt5-5.11.3-5.11.2_a-cp35.cp36.cp37.cp38-abi3-macosx_10_6_intel.whl

I noticed because it broke version parsing automation in my company. Now
that is not that important of course. But still there are questions

Can anyone shed some light on why wheels include 2 versions? Also Pip
cannot parse second version and if it's for humans the use still
unclear.  Latter
is especially strange for names like in example above containing two patch
versions 5.11.3. And 5.11.2. Why not have only one.
