 That was me  :-)

 The reason I asked is really for OMAP; I don't really care whether the
 vexpress flavor is called linaro-vexpress or vexpress (the former is
 consistent, the latter is cleaner).   This is needed for OMAP because I
 think having two -omap packages in Ubuntu with only differing ABI
 versions would be very confusing.

 (Also it wouldn't work in the metas anyway)
