hey! get in line ... ;-)

Timing is not crucial, so whatever suits best (was thinking some time
during Wed - Fri).

The LUNI package renaming will touch a number of modules, so I can
either lock the world until I'm done, or release each of the renamed
references over a short period of time (expect ~1hr svn-willing).
After the rename you *will* need a new version of the IBM Harmony VME if
you want to continue running it on that VM.
