As the saying goes: You can't have the pie and eat it.
There are conflicting goals: either we want to make clear that upstream
sources are unaltered (which we agree is a good principle) and therefore name
a source file modules-2.0.tar.gz or we strive for consistency and name it
modules_2.0.0-8.tar.gz which looks as if we have altered the sources.
But I very much like the idea of renaming the directory. After all, it
contains pristine upstream material _plus_ our patches.
