and libopie-dev as well as the source name opie.  I'm well aware of this.  So
far there is no clashes.  Personally the naming convention of opie better
suits these apps then the OTP apps.  But this is my opinion.   Either way
this is not a namespace requirement and I don't forsee such a generic
package name coming out of this project as opie-client or opie-server.
