On the other hand we at openSUSE expect people to "Have a lot of
fun" and clearly renaming chromium-bsu to chromium will cause
people to have a lot of fun the first time they run chromium after
the update.

You don't need a cbsu rename to get there.

Take inspiration from openssl-1_0.spec, openssl-1_1.spec and
libressl.spec. They all provide /usr/bin/openssl, it's like a box of
chocolate ;-)

Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Let's make /usr/bin/chromium managed
by update-alternatives [1]. The game should of course be the default
target because, you know, "Have a lot of fun!" ;-)

[1] I'd even argue that this is the first case where update-alternatives
is really useful ;-)
