smalleiffel to smarteiffel upgrade plan

The Eiffel programming language smalleiffel has been renamed upstream to
smarteiffel.  Thankfully, they have also abandoned the insane version
numbering of smalleiffel!

In order to give users of the smalleiffel package a seamless upgrade, I
plan to make the next smalleiffel version a dummy package that depends
on smarteiffel. Smarteiffel will conflict with any earlier version of
smalleiffel.  After sarge is released, the next unstable release of
smarteiffel will conflict with all smalleiffel versions and smalleiffel
will be removed from the unstable distribution.

Can anyone see any problems with this plan?

      be highminded nor trust in uncertain riches, but in 
      the living God, who giveth us richly all things to 
      enjoy; That they do good, that they be rich in good 
      works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; 
      Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation 
      against the time to come, that they may lay hold on 
      eternal life."          I Timothy 6:17-19
