looks like I should try to find out how to rename the project to letux-replicant :)
Maybe just another set of symlinks so that old links still work...

I have looked into it and we should think about having a separate
letux_replicant_defconfig and integrate as much as possible into
the standard letux kernel tree. But that isn't urgent.

I wish I had more time to test that as well...
But there are others here on these lists and hopefully someone has
time and reports how it goes.
