We discussed this topic, but haven't closed it IIRC. New users won't 
need it, correct. But I remember we said the old users would probably 
expect centos-release-SCL will be replaced by centos-release-scl 
automatically. So, it still seems something we should change.

This couldn't be done before the first release, because all the 
collections weren't released at that point. Now, I believe we can add 
the Provides/Obsoletes bits into centos-release-SCL. Let's discuss this 
on the meeting tomorrow.
