Also change the derivation attribute and name to Picom, a maintained
fork of Compton.

Picom creates compton binaries too, so no config changes required elsewhere.

Commits between 7.2 and 7.5 show that the primary change was the rename, with commits addressing a few memory leaks (and some non-functional cleanup).

Assuming the rename is done right (everything still evals? :P), this seems safe to me :).

Oh, actually:

  • Please rename the directory to reflect the new name (compton -> picom)
  • The NixOS module needs to be updated similarly-- both renaming the file and updating to use pkgs.picom.
  • Please add an alias, so that users of pkgs.compton are warned but not broken.
