Well, the version on tuxfamily is not maintained at the moment... or
sporadically if at all.
So, what we released here is OTR for irssi and that is all so
"irssi-otr" seems to me a good name (being a module not a perl script).
The package on tuxfamily should indeed be something else. Personally,
I *prefer* separating components rather then trying to fit a square
and a circle in a triangle.
Xchat and wee-chat should be separated package in my opinion. Anyway,
for now, the release is exclusively Irssi and Otr 4.0.x thus the naming.
