Why two 'ddrescue's out there?

There is a package called 'dd_rescue' already in Rawhide:
Name   : dd_rescue
Arch   : i386
Version: 1.12
Release: 6.fc7
Size   : 37 k
Repo   : development
Summary: Fault tolerant "dd" utility for rescuing data from bad media
Description:
ddrescue is a utility similar to the system utility "dd" which copies
data from a file or block device to another. ddrescue does however
not abort on errors in the input file. This makes it suitable for
rescuing data from media with errors, e.g. a disk with bad sectors.

This package includes dd_rhelp, a wrapper script facilating data
recovery.

Happy hacking,
Debarshi
