Maybe I could just name the package like libexecline(which has binaries as helper programs). Then users will think they can't get an execline pacakge.
This would confuse users, because execline is not a library, it's a package with binaries (and that also includes a library for execline helper development, but that should naturally go into an execline-dev subpackage). Why is it so hard to do things the right way instead of looking for technical workarounds to political problems (which never works)? Do you do this with other packages? -- Laurent
