Greetings list.

I am packaging libev into Fedora. During package review [1] we found
out that there's name conflict between libevent (already in Fedora) and
libev (now in the process of adding to Fedora) in case of event.h, which's
name is contained in both source packages and which, both, by default, tend 
to install to /usr/include.

Do you thing it could be possible to avoid such conflict on upstream 

Giving example, to install event.h, ev.h and ev++.h to /usr/include/libev
by default?

(Also having libev.pc file would help too.)
