What other packages does it block, and how exactly does it block them?

I'd quibble with these characterizations since the Python testing tool named
tox appears to predate the instant message tool named tox by many years.  I'd
claim that it's unfortunate that tox.chat chose a name which is very common,
and with a long history in another context.

I don't want to make life difficult for you, but I'm highly resistant to
changing either the package name or the executable name.  I'll wait for your
response, but I intend to close this bug as wontfix.
