Does Wikidata store Common Platform Enumeration (CPE) names for
software?  CPE is a attempts to provide standard names for software
packages, primarily so that one can unambiguously refer to a software
package in a CVE.

If Wikidata supported CPE, that’d be nice because in Guix we already
store (sometimes…) ‘cpe-name’ properties so that things like ‘guix lint
-c cve’ know which package to look for in the CVE database.
