Naming things is hard :) My thinking was that this package is a 
collection of orphans. I don't think it's wrong enough that it's worth 
uploading a renamed package (especially this near to the freeze).

Once it's in testing, maybe some inits might want to Suggest it, which 
probably addresses the discoverability problem...?
