Rather than having each page named like
"LASoundCards_Creative_SBAudigyOEM", I'd rather abbreviate the prefix,
something like "LaScCreative_SBAudigyOEM" -- the prefix doesn't have to
be human readable (imho), just something unique to sort by.  

Then the list of soundcards can be, as you suggest, "LASoundCards".

Hmm, I wasn't thinking, but we probably don't need the underbar (we can
use, as you suggest, LATopic vs. LA_Topic (LA should be quite unique).

I'd prefer (I think) LALinuxAudio, which sort of explains the LA prefix
in the name.

Anyway, I'll wait to hear further comments from you before making any
name changes.
