Some are even called -nox11 (edtors/xemacs-nox11).
Also, we had foo-gui since some time as www/links-gui...
* PKGNAME-gui when the package really provides a gui to some other program
(eg. as Marc's bittorent packages are, so this he named it consistent)
* PKGNAME-nox when the package is mostly (commonly) used on X, and non-X
version should be an option - eg. xemacs and xemacs-nox (not "nox11",
"nox" is enough - IMO)
* PKGNAME-x11 when it is just otherwise (package is commonly used in text
mode, x11 is an option) - for example, let's imagine package "traceroute"
and it's X11 version, called "traceroute-x11" or "xtraceroute"
* bittorent IMO should be leaved as-is, it is consistently named
* links-gui could be renamed to links-x11, as it doesn't really provide any
more gui, than text-based links has (imaginary links package using
framebuffer on Linux could be then named links-fb for example)
* ... something more?
