If one of the maintainers disagrees with a solution you did not come to
a consensus. Yes. And the policy has an easy solution for that:

10.1 Binaries
The maintainers should report this to the debian-devel mailing list and
try to find a consensus about which program will have to be renamed. If
a consensus cannot be reached, both programs must be renamed.

And this is - looking at this way too long thread - the best solution
for this issue imho.
