true, that is the least hassle thing to do.
Howeer, I think that it is nice that the swname matches the upstream name

And going the other way, changing the PKG name, of such an oooold, and
crucial package, makes me shudder to think about it.
[by neccessity, it was one of the very first packages built and released, ever]
I'd rather we just leave well enough alone and not change either.
