Given the rather generic package name, and the fact that
upstream is already using yorick-svipc, wouldn't it be
better to continue using yorick-svipc as the package name?

Are the POSIX equivalents not supported already in Yorick and
Python?  While yorick-svipc is undoubtedly useful, it's also
quite dated; the standard POSIX equivalents to the old SysV
should really be preferred.

FWIW, http://pypi.python.org/pypi/posix_ipc/0.8.1
