We do minor naming adjustments to the package names all the time (our Apache
package is even named "httpd" which has almost nothing in common with upstream
naming). I don't see what would be so difficult about using knm-new and avoid
all kinds of special casing. It's really a minor change and we've done a lot
more over the years.

We try to keep as close as possible to upstream names because mis-attributing
Bill's work to Bob is very bad mojo, but staying close has never been 100%
identical and in this particular case I don't think there would be any
ambiguity on the font authors even with knm-new
