Well, it's also a Gnome panel applet, and according to the package
naming guidelines it seems to me that the should be named gnome-applet-
netspeed in that case. (It's useful that the package clearly denotes
that it's a Gnome applet as opposed to say a KDE add-on of some sort.
Also, you can easily find Gnome applets by doing a "yum list gnome-
applet-\*' when this naming convention is used.)

Regarding the earlier packages, it's certainly possible to pull the
obsoletes/provides trick to provide a sane upgrade path:
http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageNamingGuidelines#head-2c81f7aaf6772e9816f9cf8c5eb62efac828e902

(The sections on renaming and "add-on packages" are conveniently located
right next to each other here.)

Of course, this change would necessitate some minor changes in the
spec , where you use %{name}. Otherwise, apart from what Ignacio
commented on, I think this looks good.
