Is it actually a good idea not end with "-face"? I do it for all my
packages. And the reason is a very good one: I get completion
(completion-at-point, apropos, git-grep, CEDET tags, whatever) for faces
with "package-prefix.*-face". It's useful to distinguish the face
symbols from the variable symbols.
