[packagers] retty - naming conflict in rpmforge

Hello Oliver,

Your retty software is being packaged by RPMforge (http://rpmforge.net)
to make it available to a larger community.
Unfortunately there is another software with the same name
(http://pasky.or.cz/~pasky/dev/retty/) that is also part of this

The name (and version) conflict prevents a peaceful coexistence of both
packages in RPMforge.
The only way to resolve this conflict is to slightly rename one of the
software packages.

I am a user of RPMforge with an interest of using both packages and
would therefore like to propose that you rename your retty software to
something similar e.g. rettyd or remtty or rtty.

Such a step would help a larger community to a hazzle-free concurrent
use of both software packages.

Thank you
