Yeah, that would work, since it avoids the configuration file conflict,
which is also what we did for the Apache configuration.  It would be kind
of a shame to do that since Shibboleth 1.x is going to go away and we'd
then be stuck with the non-conflicting name.  But having purge not work
isn't good either.

None of these solutions are particularly thrilling me, but I'm not sure
there's a very good one.
