Package Naming

I've added Alexandria to AUR as 'cl-alexandria', because 'alexandria' is already taken by a book collection managing application. It is clear that the directory in /usr/share/common-lisp/ should be named 'alexandria' and not 'cl-alexandria', otherwise code written with it would not be compatible with other distros.

Should we be naming all CL packages with a 'cl-' prefix, or only those that "already" have it (like cl-ppcre and cl-who)?

package name should follow the prefix cl-packagename, but in the directory structure, conserve the original name.
