From Sandro I took that he was slightly in favor of keeping the old name. Luca 
has also already packaged the current state.
And with the conflict only in the -dev packages with a somewhat old version 
should not be so big a problem.

Personally I like libgpgme-qt libgpgme-cpp, better and think now that It was a 
mistake not to change them when migrating the code. This is also what other 
projects do, e.g. libpoppler with libpoppler-qt4, libpoppler-cpp etc.

I tend to agree that the change is too distruptive now. To make it cleanly we 
should also rename the installed libraries, how the libraries are mentioned in 
the doc etc and not just change the header install location. And this would be 
another very disruptive change after we just did one. Also this way at least 
for QGpgME we follow the <namespace>/<class> pattern for the camelcased 

To summarize: I like libgpgme-qt and libgpgme-cpp better then libgpgmepp and 
libqgpgme but I don't think we should change it right now.

Werner is currently working on the release, it might even come today.
