[aur-general] How to name llvm trunk packages tailored to work with mesa trunk ?

llvm-git (and it's predecessor llvm-svn) is intended to provide a full 
implementation of the llvm/clang compiler suite. It's a huge package 
that takes a lot of time and processor capacity to build.

While mesa needs llvm, it only needs a subset.

examples :

llvm-git builds with ocaml support, but mesa doesn't use ocaml at all.

llvm-git builds for lots of processor architectures not supported by 
archlinux. RISC-V is one of them.

I've been looking into this and tried 2 (bad) naming schemes already.

The current scheme goes like this :

lone_wolf-llvm-git , lone_wolf-compiler-rt-git, lone_wolf-clang-git and 

llvm-mesa-git seems to vague, while llvm-trunk-for-mesa-trunk-git feels 
clumsy and long.

Please help me to find  a good name for these packages.
