how to implement a renamed package


I am maintaing the Debian package puzzle and have a problem
with the new upstream version. The package and program has been
renamed by upstream to tree-puzzle, because there was a conflict
with another program named puzzle.
I was considering to make a new package tree-puzzle which conflicts
and replaces puzzle, but this way the users of puzzle would not get
the automatical upgrade of this new upstream version with 'apt-get
Thus, how can I automatically replace the package puzzle with the
new package tree-puzzle?
