Right, I overlooked that fact (not packaging no-engine themes) in my
original post. From that POV it makes already more sense to have the
gtk-engines-* names.

What I (right now) think makes most sense, is splitting the engine themes up
into an gtk-engine and a gtk-theme package. I know that it does at least for
the one I'd like to package, because the theme is known as Crux but the
engine is called "eazel engine" - now what should a single gtk-engine
package be called?
Maybe the other engine packages should be split up as well in an engine
package containing only the library and another with the default theme from
that engine.

Comments? Does this add too much packages to the archive?

And how about the naming for engine packages? Would it be bad if I break the
habit and call it gtk-engine-eazel instead of using "-engines-", since it
does only contain one?
