obfsproxy will be in Wheezy. So in any cases, if the binary package name
is going to stay the same, it would probably be better to have a version
number for the Python codebase higher than the previous implementation.

The package is waiting in the NEW queue:

Do you plan to rename the Git repository, project page and all for the
Python codebase? If not, we can have the source package "pyobfsproxy"
create a "obfsproxy" binary package that would superseed the package
currently in Debian. It could only be done after the actual "obfsproxy"
is removed, though.

Should I ask the ftpmasters to remove pyobfsproxy from the NEW queue
until we sort this out?
