I really don't think this is common enough to merit its own namespace,
however, final naming decisions fall on the maintainer. If you've got 20
of these that you're planning on packaging, then perhaps it makes sense
for you to name it "x11-applet-*", but I won't force you down that road.

Probably a good idea. :)
Is there any _official_ statement on this topic now?
I have a similar question about the name of gnome-applets, in my case
(#168032) it's gnome-timer-applet vs. gnome-applet timer. The upstream
package ist called timer-applet, I think we need at least gnome as
prefix. But I'm still unsure, whether to name the package applet-foo or
On the hand there are:
and on the other:
* glunarclock (no prefix at all)
Any ideas and comments?
