Binary package hint: python-django-openid-auth

Ubuntu package "src: python-django-openid-auth binary: same" is native to Ubuntu and not in Debian
Debian package "src: django-auth-openid binary: python-django-auth-openid" is native to Debian, and synced into Maverick

It seems that Debian have also package django-openid-auth, which seems
to have the same project upstream code - but slightly different

The Ubuntu maintainer has mentioned that he wouldn't be upset if his
package was dropped, but is keen to ensure there is an upgrade path.

So, we have a few options:
A) Do nothing until Natty (Keep both packages)
B) Drop the Debian package for Maverick, and resolve the matter in Natty.
C) In Maverick drop the Ubuntu package, and have a transitional package (due to the name change).
