This was also true of, say, the original gnome-packagekit and pirut.
Eventually gnome-packagekit was widely accepted to be a full replacement
for pirut and it grew: "Obsoletes: pirut ..." and nobody minded and we
all went out for beers. 

It's all going to work out OK in the end. "The middle of every
successful project looks like a disaster" and "The only way out is
through" and all that. F12 Alpha is something like 3 months away. Let's
concentrate on moving forward. 

Onward to better volume controls! And cold* beers!
