I suspect that the maintainer of gkrellmms/gkrellmms2 simply observed
the repetition of the letter "m" (gkrellm-mms) and decided it would look
snappier to leave out the repeated letter.

Yes, consistent naming would be a good thing. The usual practice seems
to be <base-package-name>-<module>, e.g. xmms-flac, gkrellm-mailwatch,
etc. Inconsistencies are not uncommon (smpeg-xmms, gkrellmms) but are
not desirable, IMHO. So I suggest sticking with the usual practice,
perhaps even suggesting fixed-up names for the existing inconsistent
packages. Your package, I think, should be called gkrellm2-longrun.
