Well, I could do that too, you're right. In my opinion *-gui is fine, because .. well it IS the gui of mkvmerge ;) And most importantly, I named it that way, because the real name of mmg is "mkvmerge GUI", so I had the choice between "mkvmergegui" or "mkvmerge-gui". I chose the latter, because it looks better ;)

But honestly, I don't care, if it's called *-gui or *-gtk. If it's really convention (I haven't found this anywhere after a quick search like in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_Packaging_Standards#Package_Naming) or if TUs thing *-gtk is better, I'll be happy to reupload it with that name.
