Of course there is. The most difficult thing seems sometimes to be the
authors of different packages to work together so we can get the best
out of it without the burden of many similar packages. Getting things
together and comparing is very difficult and takes time however so it
is not surprising.

There is a page on EmacsWiki about the available packages. Maybe
cleaning up and rewriting that page can be a good start?
