beside the matter-of-fact reply of Stefan, I haven't seen anyone else
express opinion on this matter. I believe that with easy code
distribution via ELPA (and MELPA) it would be best to have some
consistency in package naming, thus an (unofficial, not strictly
enforced) naming convention would be a good thing.

Does anyone else feel like commenting on this?

Thank you.
