What is so special about fftw to name the version that is not further
developed as fftw as opposed to the version that is developed? Don't we trust
upstream to decide which is the package's name?
OTHO version 2 and 3 are different libraries (different API) that target
more or less the same problem space, so there is not such a thing as an
upgrade path in this case. If they had different names then there would not
be such a problem. :-)
