One question regarding the naming of packages:

The default flavour should probably(?) lead to a package with the same
name as created without flavours.

But any non-default flavour needs a distinct package name.

In the case of the Python ports, this will be the version prefix (py27-
vs. py36-).

But what is planned for the general case?

Will it be left to the port maintainer to add prefixes / postfixes to
package names that reflect the flavours by means of the options that
are enabled by some particular flavour?

Or will the flavour be automatically added to the package name, if
there would be name collisions, otherwise?
