Hi Benjamin,

I think that Debtags allow to everything you would like to do with the naming
scheme you proposed, and in a much more user-friendly way. It will be much less
time-consuming to properly document already existing binary packages through
debtags than to do a mass renaming that need uploads and passage through to the
NEW queue. For source package names, I also recommend to stick to the upstream
tarball name whenever possible.

Have a nice day,
