Call it either gtk-engines-crux, or gtk-engines-eazel, but 
I think it is known more under the name of the theme.

I should think including the theme as a sample of using of the 
engine is a fine thing, but trying to create gtk-themes-* packages
would be over the top.

Yes. Just stick to engines.
I don't think many of the "engines" have more than one engine anyway.

People may want to install with gtk-engines-\*, and 
there is no reason to break it.
