This is the default names that will be used when using urpmi.addmedia
--distrib. If the name is already used, urpmi.addmedia currently prepend
a number to the name.

It is also possible to specify a name when using urpmi.addmedia
--distrib. In that case, a string like this is prepended : " (nameN)" 
with N a number incremented for each media. Maybe this could be changed
to prefix with "name-" instead.
