[DRE-maint] libdaemonize-ruby and libdaemons-ruby

Hello people :D

In my journey packaging mongrel, I discovered that it depends on
libdaemons-ruby ([1]). It isn't packaged it, but I'm finishing it and
I'll put it into packages-wip soon.

Well, but what I want to discuss is: libdaemons-ruby has merged with
libdaemonize-ruby ([2]), that is a package maintained by Paul. The
problem is: it was merged but they changed the place of the include
file from "daemonize" to "daemons/daemonize". I'm thinking in set 
libdaemons-ruby to replace libdaemonize-ruby, and then create
a stub to not break current applications using it, so we just need to
maintain one package that creates daemons.

What about it? Sugestions?  Paul, do you agree?
