The package name is kind of consusing though since it is named
as libftdi1 (version 0.18-1).

One thing that I think that may cause further integration of libftdi-1.0
into distros is that it is supposedly to be total replacement of
libftdi so they can not coexist together. And they actually
depend on different packages (libusb-0.1 and libusb-1.0).

Maybe it is time to rename the libftdi-1.0 binaries to
libftdi-1.0.{so, dll, a, dll.a} and rename the header file
to libftdi.h, similar to libusb-1.0. In that case, it can
coexist with the current libftdi and the distros can easily
add it in without affecting the original libftdi package.
