* I also overlooked that your hotwire-irbd binary package
installs /usr/sbin/hotwire (which I saw as hotwireD). Though `hotwire' binary
package (as mentioned in an earlier mail) installs /usr/bin/hotwire, hence
the file conflict won't be encountered, it might be somehow confusing and
fragile to the user side to expect that entries in their path are to be set
in any particular order. Since yours is a server app, renaming it to
`hotwired' sounds reasonable IMO.
