As a user, I hate to have to follow the abstruse reasoning of a random 
set of developers forcing a packager to pick a name for the package 
that is different than the executable. A unicorn dies every time 
`apt-get install sillypackage && sillypackage` results in "File not 
found". Dang!  that was my favorite unicorn.
