Agreed. Debian users look for consistency in the same way that
development packages are called foo-dev, documentation packages are
called foo-doc and some packages share content via foo-common packages,
just to name a few things.

I think that this would be a nice suggestion for Norbert. If I were
maintaining the packages, this would be something that I would actually
adopt, to conform to the practices of both worlds. A good compromise,

Of course, the packages are his and he decides how to name what.
