Yap, I thought call it as stardict-console might be easier for our users
to find it, But it also looks fine if it listed under stardict virtual
package. So let's just keep it in upstream author's naming convention.

An update from stardict maintainer Roy Hiu-yeung Chan:
yes... notice you, I already create  virtual-package named
stardict-dictionary few years ago when I start to maintain stardict.

And then I take a look at virtual-package-names-list again, I found
this: 25 Apr 2004 Added stardict-dictionary

Sorry for the mistake, I'd change the title for my wishlist bug on
