Actually Tux Racer comes in two modules upstream. Yes, they are released mostly
simultanously but I made the decicison to have separate source packages.
- wanted to orig.tar.gz be same as upstream
- tuxracer-data is architecture independent
- if I tweak the tuxracer package (-x+1 version), users wouldn't need to
redownload the unchanged tuxracer-data
