I have suggested the renaming in the AUR comments. I think the CVS
versions are no real releases. They are just CVS snapshots and
therefore unstable versions.

And usually stable versions have just the package name while unstable
versions have the corresponding extension added. So even if it's just a
snapshot and no real cvs build I would suggest renaming the packages to
avoid misunderstandings.

If the cvs snapshot is indeed stable, at least the -stable package
should be renamed to -legacy or something like that.
