There is no reason to do so. Santiago just likes the other name more then
the first. libc6 is a Linuxism, as the real name is more correct (glibc2).
However, just to make damn life easier, I suggest we stay with the Debian
GNU/Linux names ""libc6". This avoids confusion.

Santiago, could you please take this up with the new libc6 maintainer, so we
can change to a better name in the future for the _whole_ distribution?
