Hi Guix!

I already had a "rename" binary via util-linux. Then I installed the package "rename", resulting in another "rename" binary, as I prefer the Perl version. This was a success in that I got what I wanted.

However, should this name clash be considered a bug?
Is there a policy for such circumstances?
What happens that the newly installed "rename" gets precedence?

The best info I found on the rename vs rename issue in general:
