No reason to gratuitously introduce confusion.  Sometimes we cannot avoid it,
and names are never perfect.  But this is counter-productive.  Please DTRT, one
way or another.

If you define a command that does multiple things, then try to find a name that
expresses that.  If the multiple things are completely different from each
other, then they might not belong together in the same command.

In this case, the command reports a certain number of counts, which is fine.
The name should reflect that.
