I see why the source packages should have different names.  I don't
yet see why there should be different .tar.gz files, because in fact
both RPMs use the same sources.  Is it necessary to have two copies of
the same sources with different names?

Keep in mind that I understand RPM packaging very poorly.

Thanks,

Ben.
