When several packages offer similar functionality, they fight for the
same name.  Should Gnus or Rmail or MH-E or ... be the one called "Mail"?

I don't see much need for that.  Once the users have found the
`language-server-mode`, the usual help system should make it easy for
them to find the rest under their "eglot-" names.

But if/when a such a need arise, of course we can add more aliases.
