Hi Stan,

Some automatic way to convert the "nathelper" to "rtpproxy" module name 
may be misleading, I think - especially that the set of functions in the 
2 modules will be different (as set and names).

A better possible approach can be keep the "nathelper" module as an 
dummy module that tells (at load time) the whole migration story so 
that, you can load the proper module.
