Just out of curiosity, what has made you come to this decision? For years,
and to this day, both SleepyCat and Oracle call their product Berkeley DB
yet the tarball is db-x.x.x.

Is there any difference here? I suppose I'm trying to show you that the
oddball packagename/tarballname combination has been in the book for years
for many packages. Why are you just now thinking that it should be changed?
