Clarity trumps brevity everytime. I am sometimes tempted to rename one
package I maintain (the ee editor), just for that one reason.

As an end luser and consumer, it is a lot easier for me to find
something called canon-driver-cups-lib-bin, if that is what you really
mean. The AUR web interface doesn's allow searching on description
texts last time I checked therefore using a descriptive package name
is the right thing to do by your users.

I rather ask the other maintainer to rename his package, not renaming
yours in that incredibly cryptic and convoluted way. He may feel he is
entitles having arrived first but when you do a publish a public work,
your first duty is to your users.
