It turns out that the published public interface of libfam as specified
in fam(3) is purely in C (that is, C++ is used only internally), so
libfam remains binary compatible across the g++ ABI change.  This
observation was pointed out to me only very recently, otherwise maybe we
could have avoided the package name change altogether.

See http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2005/08/msg00090.html for
discussions related to this change.
