I'm not sure which one to delete, I dislike both namings. IMO a name
like amarok-unstable or amarok-devel would fit it better. At least the
beta3 name is plain stupid as there is also a beta2 etc...
I'll see if I can contact both maintainers this evening and remove the
old packages sometime after that.
