APT2 is now UPS

APT2 is now called UPS (Universal Package System). The name is inspired by the company that delivers packages in those brown trucks and from the Image Packaging System (IPS) of OpenSolaris; and mvo writing ups after I proposed upt (über package tool) in IRC. It’s definitely better than my first thought which was ‘moo’ (and libmoo).

Update: OK, let’s cancel this rename insanity.
