I guessed so, but still.

The problem is that people know pth, but they don't know pthsem (yet).
It will be a long time before people discover that there is a new
interesting pthsem package that basically does the same as pth with
quite a few extra features, is not dead etc.  Why not just replacing the
existing pth package with pthsem to avoid that delay?

Were I Martin Kögler, I'd even just request GNU to become the new
maintainer of pth.
