Free vs. Paid Package Names

 I'm trying to manage how I would change my previously free application
into two different applications and I'm debating between the following

1.) Manually change the package name in Manifest and correct all of my
references to R when I build my free version.
2.) Simply build both versions with the same package name.  I'm hoping
that when someone bought the paid version that the database would stay
and just the program code would change.

I'm leaning towards option 2 right now since it's easier to maintain.
I'm internationalized so changing the package name on R isn't trivial
and Google generates the class with the final modifier.

Any advice is appreciated.

I doubt that you can upload two applications (free and paid) with the
same package name to the Market. One of the two has to be different.
