I am working on two packages
qtpovray-3.80.0
qtpovray-includes-3.80.0

1) qtpovray-includes contains include  and Insert Menu. It should 
probably contain the help too.
I am torn between just the one "architecture independent" package which 
contains everything, or should I split that up into multiple packages.
Or, stay with one package and call it qtpovray-extra

2) I'm not happy with the version number (3.80.0) because I have
/usr/share/povray-3.7
and
/usr/share/qtpovray-3.80

I get it, but I don't like the way it implies qtpovray is 73 minors 
beyond povray.  Is is more, or less, confusing to have qtpovray-3.80.0 
reference /usr/share/qtpovray-3.8 ?

3) I want to release a shell version of qtpovray, comparable to original 
flavor povray, but povray 3.8-beta and built with qmake.  I need this 
for my renderfarm. But, what to call it?  I'm leaning towards qtpovrayc.
