Well, if the soname will be changing again soon anyway then there's no
reason to reupload just to add the "a" to the package name.  If the lib
soname is going to be around for a while, though, for my part I think it's
worthwhile to get the package name consistent across distros where possible;
and in that case, the "c2a" name should be preferred since that's the name
specified in the published transition plan.
