I'd like to push the existing Planet CCRMA plugin collections to extras
so we should agree on naming before I get started (I'd prefer to switch
names only once - I would have to include proper obsoletes/provides so
that the extra packages have a clean upgrade path for current Planet
CCRMA users)...

I currently have (at Planet CCRMA):

  cmt -> ladspa-plugins-cmt
  mcp-plugins -> ladspa-plugins-mcp
  rev-plugins -> ladspa-plugins-rev
  vco-plugins -> ladspa-plugins-vco
  fil-plugins -> ladspa-plugins-fil
  amb-plugins -> ladspa-plugins-amb
  blop -> ladspa-plugins-blop
  tap-plugins -> laspa-plugins-tap
  caps -> ladspa-plugins-caps
  pvoc -> ladspa-plugins-pvoc

(and swh which is already in extras)

There are a lot of "original package names" that are already
NAME-plugins, so maybe it would be better to go with the crowd and agree


where NAME includes plugins or not depending on the original name.
Or even better:


where you add "plugins" if it is not already there. 
This last one does sound better to my ears.
