The accepted practice is to use a name for the package that is very
close to the upstream name of the software itself. I understand that,
for example, ladspa or pd externals are special cases but I'm trying to
avoid using special names in the packages. 

I'll think about this, there should be some way to add that information
to the package without using the name. Maybe adding some special tag to
the commentary itself so that it would become possible to search by
using grep (the "group" tag would be the obvious choice but the
categories themselves are very sparse and suggestions to extend them
have not had effect).
