According to the test-framework convention, they ought to be named




respectively, and you can see that it was the case in the early

But it's just too much to type.

My justification (which you may or may not buy) is that, unlike, say,
Test.Framework.Providers.HUnit, this is not an adaptation of an existing
testing library to test-framework, but is a new library that just
happens to use test-framework. So it's more like Test.HUnit, although it
already subsumes what would become Test.Framework.Providers.Golden.
