It is not that *we* are renaming those libs... It is getting done upstream 
(enlightenment) and there is not much we can do about that.

Right now SHR is using a newer version of enlightenment as OM is using. That's 
where the difference comes from. And this game will continue until 
enlightenment people decide otherwise :(

Btw. IMHO you should not care about building packages for SHR or OM. We both 
will happily add all wanted packages to our feed...

Btw. current intone does not build from SVN... it has some problems with 
id3lib. Could you please fix that :)
