I would create a symbolic link audacious ->  audacious2, so the previous

AFAIK, this is not done in Debian/Ubuntu either. The .desktop file has
been renamed, too, and additionally the Fedora "--vendor fedora" has had
to be dropped (or else one would need to keep such patches, which deviate
from upstream, forever). The manual pages have been renamed to "audtool2"
and "audacious2".


I agree, lets just stick with what upstream does and drop the old binary names
completely.

I would also call the libs package libs2, so the previous lib package do not
need to be removed during the upgrade.

That would create an orphan, an obsolete audacious-libs package which
is not tied to any current src.rpm package, and which could cause
problems in the future (such as unresolvable deps).
