After thinking about this some more, perhaps it is better to skip the
renumbering dance and import Enchant 2 as textproc/enchant2.
Otherwise, for istance, once we release the next quarterly release
(where expat is version 2) would be in for a nasty surprise if they
did a "make replace" in enchant and found that webkit no longer works.
Having the new package be called enchant2 in the future is ugliness I
can live with. And it matches what upstream does.
