Note, that I don't think we should remove the old package, we should
simply follow the normal end of life procedure for it. 

Then, people looking for it under the old name will see a dead.package
in cvs and that will point them to the new package. History will be
preserved, etc. 

I guess we should have a clear guideline on this. I will see about
submitting one to the packaging folks.
