I am surprised this became a concern so quickly, but I do understand the
strangeness of installing a 'bash8' binary on command line. I'm fine with
renaming to 'bashate' or 'bash_tidy', but renames can take some time to
work through all the references.

Apparently Sean and I both thought of the 'bashate' name independently
(from gpb => jeepyb) but I wasn't to keen on the idea since it isn't very
descriptive. 'bash-tidy' makes more sense but we can't use dashes in python
package names :(

My vote would be for 'bashate' still, since  I think that would be the
easiest to transition to from the current name.
