I've been thinking about this for a while, at first I was
thinking that it would be better to just re-use the current
openal package name and cvs module and that thus there
would be no need for a review. But thinking about this some
more I think it would be a good idea to indeed have a new
openal-soft package, which should (hopefully) be parrallel
installable to the regular / obsolete openal.

I think having the -devel packages conflict is not much of
an issue as this is only transitional, evt. openal-soft
should obsolete openal.
