I should have brought this up sooner, but isn't slfoo too shortish
for a debian package name?  The perl policy says:
naming convention for module Foo::Bar is libfoo-bar-perl.

The Python naming scheme seems to be python-foo.
I vote vor slang-foo. (Not only because I like python more than perl, but
because this way slang modules will appear close to slang in an alphabetical
listing (e.g. in aptitude or `ls /usr/share/doc/`).

There is no policy in Debian regarding packages which provide SLang2
modules.  Maybe we should write a draft and put it in one of the slang2
packages?  Alastair, what do you think?

My preference is for slang-foo, as it is more visible that it is
a slang-related, rather than a generic DSO; slang-gdbm is more interesting to a slang developer than to a gdbm one, and this shows that.

It appears php and common lisp, follow the $lang-foo naming scheme,
with ruby going the perl direction.

I can write up a short policy specifying it and include it in the next copy
of slang2. Please CC: me on any relevant comments.
