+1 from me! This will make it much easier to track
things down.

Depending on the "definition" of visualisation and hence sci-vis
this category could also include

sci-chemistry/pymol

and possibly 

sci-chemistry/molden

since both visualize molecules. Particularly pymol doesn't
seem to really fit in sci-chemistry since it is geared toward
biomolecules and could as well be in sci-biology. The same
will hold for vmd once I am done with the ebuild.

cheers,
Markus
