It's not too late for that in debian; these bindings have only been
published in debian in the experimental repo thus far, so nothing
depends on them explicitly -- yet!

But any changes we want to make in the naming or versioning of these
bindings probably need to happen soon if we want them to be considered
for inclusion in debian.

fwiw, i also like the simplicity and clarity of this scheme.

the list of reverse dependencies in debian isn't all that large, but
getting a full rename transition done so that all of the old versions
can be dropped might end up being too big of a move before the debian
freeze.  I don't think that should stop you from trying to get the right
names going forward upstream, though.

packages that use the new names will get the new code, and packages that
don't transition will limp along on the old stuff until we get them

I do worry about providing security support to those orphaned versions,
though :/  And i *really* don't want to try to support three different
versions of gpgme in debian forever!

ah, interesting.  that's good to know.  I saw those commits and was
wondering what was up with that :)
