Bug Description

Hello,

The Scour extension currently needs six files to run, and some of them (svg_regex.py svg_transform.py and yocto_css.py) have nothing on their filename that makes you know they are related to scour.
IMHO, the extension would be easier to maintain:
1. if we add a scour_ prefix to each scour file.
2. or if we move all the files except scour.inx and scour.inkscape.py to a scour subdirectory.

Solution 2 may be a bit easier to implement since it just requires modifications in the extension specific files and in the package script, but not in the standalone (common) files.

The new scour maintainer apparently dropped the Inkscape related files. Thus I guess it's up to us to reorganize how the extension is imported in Inkscape.
