Please reconsider.  The names of your packages enter components of a
metadata collection
that must be manually altered by our core development staff to accommodate
package name changes.
While it is easy to change names of entities in programs and local file
systems, our package
ingestion, review, compilation, verification, and distribution system is
delivering resources to
thousands of users around the world every day.  We do not have the capacity
to make changes
of this kind for any but the most severe errors of name selection, for
example, employing a name
that is legally forbidden.  If this is in fact the case, you will have to
withdraw the package, have
it deprecated, and resubmit under another name.  We cannot promise rapid
turnaround for this

Thank you
