I tend to agree with Marcus on both counts, esp. the second: Does it really make sense to have two pages for TeenAgent? Nothing prevents us from having a page in two categories, and with two "info templates" in it, right?

Alas, this is really minor tidbits, in the end, any of the proposed ways is fine by me.

For me *personally*, it would actually be preferable to call the engine "Teen", by the way (and rename the engines/ subdir accordingly): When writing commit messages, "TEEN: " is so much less typing effort, and leaves so much more space for the rest of the one-line commit summary... :)  Can we rename "LASTEXPRESS" to "LAST" and "PARALLACTION" to "PARA", please ? (Yes, I *am* joking, but only half ;).
