Bug#493109: ITP: json-static -- JSON validator and converter for OCaml

There is a difference between the source package name and the binary package 

The source package name is usually not seen by the end user, and I believe 
it's good when it is closed to the original project's name.

But the binary package, the one that will be installed by the user will be 
called "libjson-static-camlp4-dev", so I think it answers your question.
