Erlang package naming

I think this is the first Erlang package in Extras:

Am I wrong to interpret the naming guidelines to say that this package
should be named erlang-esdl instead of just esdl?  What about the
Provides: esdl bit?

Since this is the first Erlang package there aren't any guidelines to
follow, but "esdl" seems awfully generic to me and there's already
been at least one naming clash.  (The poor Eiffel folks had to rename
their SDL module.)  Unfortunately other distros have chosen (poorly,
IMHO) to just call it "esdl", so either way there's a conflict.
