Can we change the name of the package? I know that is PITA, but you  
risk running afoul of Nokia if your package name begins with maemo,  
trademark and all that. Can you just swap it around to version-maemo?

Maybe it is just enough to keep in mind that there may be potential  
naming conflicts in the future and leave the name as it is.
