So what is going happen to mime-tools, soap-lite, and timedate?
I think you raise an important issue; shouldn't the naming of a
package accurately reflect the contents? Your point that the above
packages supply something _other_ than a binary and therefor should
reflect that fact is important - especially since debian wants to
provide a consistent interface for users.
What about dropping just the lib prefix? So we would get mime-tools-
perl and not libmime-tools-perl.
objections to renaming them to fit the scheme we currently have?
I have no objections at all to renaming them.
