I just talked to Ganneff:
Renamed source packages are new source package names and have to go
through NEW -- with one exception: if there already is a binary
package with this name there's already an override in place that also
works for the new source package name.

I.e. in our case where we want to adjust the source package name to
the binary package name it's safe and shouldn't cause anybody any

I'm planning on doing these changes today in the repo.
