Has anything substantially changed since then?

This is about the source package. Who is going to be confused? And what
to what effect? You fail to convince me that this is more than an
aestetic problem. On the other hand having one of the pts pages of
our binary packages (<https://packages.qa.debian.org/e17>) point to the
wrong source package is a usability problem /for/ /me/.

Switching source package names is significant effort, not only for us
but also for the for ftpmasters, which is an already resource limited
core team.
