The problem is that quite a lot users utilize the OpenCSW packages
for Perl modules to run their own applications. That means we could
drop the original packages after a "guaranteed" upgrade cycle
(which we don't have right now, like 201010 to 201011 snapshots).
But even then the packages need to be released with renames first
so they can be propery tracked and upgraded on the systems.

Best regards
