This makes sense to me. It may be worth noting that the 'old' docker
is installed by roughly 1% of our users, but according to their
website is meant for use with GNOME2 and KDE3, which we don't even
ship any more. I'd say dropping or renaming it makes the most sense
and let this new package take the name 'docker', as that's what people
will be looking for.
