Hmm, I see... I've found a discussion in the libwiimote project,
which seems to be begun by you :-) :
Of course, I'll avoid the conflict for the binary package names and
library names (soname), while I think it's better to keep the source
package name as libwiimote since it is used as the project name and
the software name. Since your cwiid package is now in the NEW queue,
I cannot see any information about the package, except for the source
package name. If possible, could you please give me information on
something that can conflict, such as binary package names and
the library name (soname)?
