We have all approaches in pkgsrc one can imagine. For example:
vim-8.1.1004 Vim editor (vi clone) without GUI
vim-gtk2-8.1.1004nb3 Vim editor (vi clone) with X11 GTK2 GUI
emacs26-26.1nb7 GNU editing macros (editor)
emacs26-nox11-26.1 GNU editing macros (editor)
It all goes to show: one better learns to check "pkgin pkg-descr"
and, because DESCR are all too often just copied, "pkgin show-deps".
There's no real benefit in renaming just for renaming's sake.
It will just add to the confusion we already have. (My 2c.)
