... but the whole point of this particular libc package is that it is
backwards compatible with the existing Debian GNU/Linux pre-2.1
packages.  This will allow us to merge our changes into Dale Scheetz's
official pre-2.1 package when it comes out, rather than maintaining a
separate glibc package.

Wouldn't the right thing be to add a ``Replaces: glibc2'' line to my
package, rather than making the package names inconsistent with the
Linux versions?

I'm sure there are other issues, too...
