The postgis source package has already been removed from testing.  In
addition, the existing postgis source package is already libpostgis1; is
there a good reason for renaming this source package?

I guess the binary package has changed names from libpostgis1-pg74 to
libpostgis1-pg7.4, and this covers us for the C++ ABI transition?
