Increasing the version of ekiga-snapshot does not work.

There are two solutions:
- either stay as we are now. Note that only gnome-desktop-environment is removed (+old pwlwib/opal), not 47 packages!! - or do not use ekiga-snapshot anymore, but ekiga (while ptlib and opal are still named -snapshot, to avoid soname problems). Note that this will not be intrusive or conflict with debian package, because the version will be carefully chosen.

What do people prefer??

I plan to change the name from ekiga-snapshot to ekiga.  This means:
- gnome-desktop-env will work
- you have to install/upgrade ekiga, not ekiga-snapshot anymore

(Note that the naming ptlib-snapshot and opal-snapshot remain.)
