Good, so if it's all the same to everyone, can we let a few of the upstream
authors' decisions remain intact? 

Their is a bug filed against my package `atp', which declares that the 
program is poorly named! The upstream author agrees but the name has value 
other than as an acryonym to him, and he's not maintaining it any more anyway.
I hardly think it is our place to even reconsider renaming upstream
packages, yet I've been asked not to close the bug. At this rate,
it will remain on file forever. What is the value in that?
