Hi Ingo,

I don't.  :-)  Not unless a user typically wants to keep both
accessible, e.g. on Sun OS where some things depend on other's old

For man(1), a user doesn't want to alter muscle memory for `man ls'.
If the project's current standards are to avoid sitting in front of the
default command then the best solution was as the project maintainers
suggested: the user modifies their PATH as directed.  It's a one-off
operation done as part of their installing it compared with `man foo',
realise something's wrong, hopefully, curse, and then `_man foo'.

Cheers, Ralph.
