Jesus, well the nicest thing to do then would be to first replace
"songbird-nightly" with "songbird-auto-nightly" and _then_ delete:
"songbird", "songbird-auto-nightly" and "songbird-nightly-bin".

"Songbird" does indeed have a lot of votes, which is just too bad, but
if "the binary version of Songbird" has to be "songbird-bin", then
"the SVN version of Songbird" has to also be "songbird-svn"... unless
that logic would need the developers to release a versioned source
too... which they don't.
