  Description     : upstream CLI entrypoints for Clojure

Currently, Debian ships our own custom CLI entrypoints for Clojure
(clojure and clojurec), under the `clojure` source package. With the 1.9
upstream release, the Clojure devs are now providing `clj` and `clojure`
entrypoint scripts as part of the "brew-install" package. This name is a
little misleading, as this package contains useful distro-agnostic

We should do our best in Debian to mirror the behaviour in upstream.
Hence, I plan on moving the "clojure" binary package (that contains our
current entrypoints) to use this upstream source package instead, and
will remove the custom Debian entrypoints (or possibly rename them to
provide some backwards compatibility?)
