Having cvs module names that don't match the tarball name confuses
people though.

The ftp site is not that important because people can live without
diffs. And RPMs can be fixed by putting in an appropriate "obsoletes"
directive or whatever. In fact GNOME 2 is already going to rename
and/or split up many modules, so this particular case will not make a
big difference.

All that being said however, I think it would be better to reorganize
things in place on the HEAD than to create a new module, since
renaming the module is in itself annoying.
