Since they really point to the same packages, if one is already using 
development-sources and linux26-headers, it's possible to have them with the 
new names, using an appropriate /etc/portage/package.unmask file.

That's what I did (sort of mini-howto, "Works For Me" (tm), FWIW):

- I had development-sources-2.6.11_rc5 and linux26-headers-

- emerge -C development-sources 
- emerge -C linux26-headers

- echo "sys-kernel/vanilla-sources ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
- echo "sys-kernel/linux-headers ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
(just changed the old development-sources and linux26-headers entries)

- echo "sys-kernel/vanilla-sources" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
- echo "<=sys-kernel/linux-headers-" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
(the latter I did since I don't want linux-headers-2.6.10 yet)

- emerge linux-headers     (brings in linux headers
- emerge vanilla-sources   (brings in linux-2.6.11_rc5)

and I have the same setup as before, but with the new names.

If you give someone a program, you will frustrate them for a day;
if you teach them how to program, you will frustrate them for a lifetime.
