Yes, the wrong name choices are why both myself and timttmy would prefer
them to be changed (he made a previous attempt at some time around the
26th of Oct last year[1], but somehow the package just ended up with 
a different version number. I'm not 100% sure why).

I was hoping there was some way to have AUR wrappers understand that the
packages had renamed, but I had suspected that there wasn't anything of
that nature. Ah well.

Anyway, I'll get on with making sure people are reasonably aware of the
name change, then post a follow-up here once it should be safe to do the

Thanks for the help!
