Most Arch devs dislike to have a lib in several versions in our repos.
I've kept the main project name "graphite" because we usually don't
rename for major .so bumps.

The new pkg provides some binary tools so I dropped the "lib" prefix.
We have to rebuild the two related packages anyways.

Technically it would be possible to ship both packages, they don't seem
to file conflict. But this is not what we want. Please have a look at
Fedora. They also dropped old silgraphite and maybe have a fix for you
