It seems we pretty much have consensus about this, and Guillem also
agreed to this on my blog post [1]. With that we can even drop the
autodetection logic at some point, and then everything will be
explicit again.

The naming is bikeshedding, so I went ahead with the proposed
"autopkgtest-$team" schema:

If/once we move to autodep8 as a separate project, it'll be
collab-maint, and every team can adjust their own tests. But even if
it stays in autopkgtest, I'm happy to update the templates. With the
pkg-perl-autopkgtest indirection in between it'll be very low effort,
and even if we cut this out and fold the real commands into the
template it won't change that often after the initial settling. Send
git formatted patches ;-)
