AFAIK the initial Debian packaging came from a Debian upstream guy and I
adopted his initial naming convention.

The Debian python packaging guide states:
"Binary packages with public modules should follow python-modulename
naming schema[...].[1]

Currently, it is a "frankenstein-package" anyways, because it contains
the server, the modules which could be used for example to write your
own client, and the client itself...

I will keep it in mind and think about renaming/splitting.
