This is an app, and installs nama, and executable.
Ansgar suggested on the channel that the package should
have a simple name (i.e. nama) instead of the usual
I recall discussions with Gregoa and others, mostly
advocating the latter.
I observe that Padre, another end-user application, has a
debian package 'padre', while its optional plugins and
libraries are libpadre-*.
Naturally I would prefer that naming as well.
