Upstream already renamed this program from "blackbox" to
"black-box" after I told him that there's a window manager with the same
name. Yes, it's not the best to have two packages with similar names. But
I think it's impossible to avoid similar names in all cases - there are
too many people who write too many programs.
A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
