 We won't need to make any changes to the actual application.
 We can put all the changes to the original migration, then remove all the
tables (migrate down the database), and then run the migration again to
create the new tables. So the whole of the application wouldn't need any
change at all.
If you agree I can do that, don't worry about it.

For the spackage renaming, it was there to distinguish it from the compiled
packages and to be one word that sometimes make it easier.
Since we do not need the compiled packages any more, we can simply call that
So maybe we can also change it to be only packages.
Not a big change again, but we will need to change model,views, controllers.
