[opensuse-packaging] server:http/nginx

I would like to suggest renaming of the nginx packages since those are
in factory and therefore already support native support of maintaining
different versions.

Having versions in package name gets annoying troubles like

- no automatic update
- runlevel gone
- config file gone

There is no known reason to keep different versions. Is there?

I would therefor suggest to rename
- current nginx-1.2 to nginx and link it from factory as devel project
- current nginx-1.3 to nginx-dev (not devel) to keep the development
version for some people which like the experimtal stuff, maybe create
a new project server:http:unstable and keep nginx branch there instead

since nginx is in factory, there is no need to keep legacy versions,
imo, but still for those you could create copy of nginx to
nginx-<version> if nessesary

Please consider this change, it would make the live of sysops and
maintainer easier.
