OK. I just tested the Fedora naming scheme at :

Not sure what to think about it. I like it because distribution
divergence is not needed here. But It will require to re-upload every
PEAR and PECL package (and Composer packages depending on them).

With this naming scheme, we would have php-twig-twig (from
composer.json), and php-twig-ctwig (See "pear install twig/CTwig"
from: http://twig.sensiolabs.org/doc/installation.html).

In summary, this naming scheme will map nicely when the composer
project name matches the PEAR channel alias.

(NB: the testsuite needs the pear-channels package installed)
