Right now, we have 'lang' to pull in all -lang subpackages, and 'docs'

There have been a few people who have asked for a way to "automatically
install all -dev packages".
Therefore, I propose we create a 'devs' or 'dev' metapackage similar to
'docs' and 'lang' that installs all -dev packages that correspond to
packages that are installed on the system.

Propose a package listing, to get an idea?
I think this is likely to quickly become bloaty, unless there really is a
good use-case for having every single -dev package installed *at once*. This
could have resource implications on 'lesser' systems (ie. /not/ Power10
users and all those devs with 8+ core i7 dev machines....)
`devs` would be an optional virtual which brings them in using
`install_if` rules. It would not be added by default.
