Actually, I thought about suggesting compressing the prefix even more.
We've got pm_* and py_*, right? If there's a whole category of X11
protocols, why not have xp_*? A counterargument could be that xp_* is
not self explanatory. Well, neither is pm_*. If anyone is interested
in what those packages are (that xp stands for X11 protocol),
descriptions will help. What do you think?
