I think flake8, python2-flake8 for the package names and flake8, flake82
for the executables is fine.  flake82 looks a little unwieldy, but I
don't think there's anything fundamentally wrong with that name.  Maybe
include a note in the .install or somewhere so that users know that it
has been renamed. 

Someone else has picked up flake8-python3 since I orphaned it, so you
may need to get him/her to drop it again.
