Since the two tools output different file types, my thinking would be 
for both applications to be able to install side by side.

As packager of pyvnc2swf, I modified the existing app names in pyvnc2swf 
so that their names wouldn't clash with existing fedora app names. 
Possibly the same was/is needed for vnc2flv ?

I don't think the old one needs retiring, since it still works as 
expected. In fact there is already a (stale) Review Request:

Jos: how would you like to finalise the work done by Chen, and bring 
this packages to acceptable state ?
