name the package "pd-pcap" and the pd library file "pcap.pd_linux" for 

Several programming languages use such naming... the hyphen makes it like 
a namespace in the package-manager, and the complete lack of the "pd-" 
prefix in the context of pd makes it look like you're loading the original 
"pcap" itself into Pd (which, of course, makes a lot more sense if that's 
exactly what your lib does : a plain wrapper and nothing else). I think 
that this is the kind of naming that users of several other programming 
languages have come to expect (Perl, Python, Tcl, Ruby, PHP, etc.)
