Are you serious? Here it's not only a pakcage issue, what you're
proposing to change package contents :/

foo-1.0.mga1 - (core)      -> /bin/foo
foo-1.2.mga1 - (backports) -> /bin/foo

they can't be installed togheter, and changing
package names would not solve this issue, but
add packagers problems like conflict or obsoleting
and upgradability issues....

/me is confused
