Renaming a package


I'm taking over the sawmill package. Due to name conflicts with a commercial
package sawmill is being renamed to sawfish. Should I install symlinks from
the old binaries to the new ones? Is a renamed package with Replaces: lines
the right way of telling apt/dpkg/dselect how to upgrade systems?
