This has been a long-standing "deviation from policy" we've had with
respect to Debian packaging, and first came up when Bdale and I were
working on the older, existing packages.  Back then, we decided not to
address it.

Tom and I just discussed this by phone and we both agree that we
should correct this.  Unfortunately, since it is a significant change
that would break many user's scripts that call the current program
names, our plan is to implement this change on our 'next' branch of
our repository and make it part of the 3.6 release.

The changes require a little more work than what you've done in your
patch, but it's a good start, and I'll give it a detailed review as
part of the 'next' branch work.

Thanks for your efforts here.
