Do we have packaging guidelines applicable for the Vala programming
language?  I've reviewed a couple of packages now and they don't have
a consistent naming convention.


vala         - the base package

emacs-vala   - emacs mode

gupnp-vala   - vala bindings for gupnp (universal plug'n'play) library

vtg          - "Vala Toys for gEdit" currently under review here:

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
