I think you also can't use a numeric as the first letter of a package. I 
remember having problem with this when i packaged 8hz-mp3. I don't
remember if it was debhelper or build that i had problem with.

Nevertheless, a package with only one letter is not very descriptive even 
if it follow policy. ie. 
 Package names may only consist of lower case letters, digits (0-9),
 plus (+) or minus (-) signs, and periods (.).

As for the M$ pundits claim that the problems result from an
incorrect setup/configuration: they are perfectly correct, if you
hadn't installed an M$ OS, then the crashes wouldn't be happening.
