Renaming is not possible yet. Indeed the only working way is to create a
new package under another name. I do not like the name 'aegisub-next-svn'
that much, because IMHO it is not clear enough. I would prefer

Do not use 'replaces=()' here. Use provides=('aegisub') and conflicts=('aegisub').

Keep contributing!
