Thank you Matt, but AFAIK the thing has been discussed and resolved in
the MOTU list as follows: I have changed the package name (from falcon
to falconpl) and keeping /usr/bin/falcon, and falcon package is having
a /usr/bin/falcon-start file in place of /usr/bin/falcon; no conflicts
have been set in the packages. As promised, I am applying the same
package name (falconpl) also to other debian-based distros.

Also, MOTUs have already approved both the packages and they are
currently on NEW.

However, any further intervention on the topic is welcome.

Giancarlo Niccolai.
