Wouldn't that particular syntax interfere with selectors?

Also (depending on how it's done) to be veering towards the rigidity
of Arch's <archive>/<category>--<branch>--<version>, and while there
are perfectly good arguments in favour of that kind of uniformity many
people don't like it (and it's not at all clear that it's useful, or
ever will be).

Yes, I think that would work better.

I think so.  It might still be nice to be able to exchange these
aliases and version them, but I'm not sure that that's important
enough to worry about for a first cut.
