Hahaha... That is somewhat the same feeling when I saw the gentoo
package was used as an packaging example for the New maintainer Guide
while updating it.  I thought Josip Rodin, being one of the old time of
Debian, made a pan on the package name using other distribution name
which was getting some momentum then just to be funny.  I was wrong.

I do not think we need to change this package name.

But considering popularity/contribution of Gentoo Distribution sometimes
creating good patched quickly, package discretion or README.Debian of
this package may be updated to include some clarifiction.
