I rely a lot on the "lib-" part of the package to avoid installing
stuff that I'd never use. I simply skip all "lib-" and let
dependencies call them in. 

I have no idea how to shorten kernel packages ... there are also the
sources, the headers and who knows what else.... maybe kern-img-x.y.z,
kern-src-..., kern-hdr-.... I guess that would confuse newcomers a
lot, anyway.
