[pick maintainer in thread]
[mmh upstream in thread]
In attachment bug report about the fact, that mmh package in debian
installs pick.1 manpage, and same does unrelated `pick' package.
Submitter proposed to rename pick(1), but I am relucant to do it,
because it may break expectations of other tools.
I heard it is somehow possible to write manpage in a way, that I
install it into `mmh_pick.1' file, but `man pick' still chooses it,
but I am no troff wizard. Any suggestion how to fix issue?
