My recollection is that games/hugo shouldn't be removed, but I don't
remember any of the details. Anyway I also vaguely recall that
www/hugo not colliding with it was not an accident.

I think we should hold off on renaming things whose PKGBASEs don't
match their directories until we manage to move to hg. There are quite
a few of them.
