A package can belong to more than one herd.  So you could create a
media-vdr herd, and have two herd tags in the metadata.xml for the vdr
packages; media-tv and media-vdr (I suggest the media- prefix as it's
not necessarily obvious what vdr means on its own).  If you do this,
make sure there's a maintainer tag.

However (c) seems to be the most sensible approach.
