Genscript is a GPLed version of enscript. I don't know who wrote it,
but it seems to be available on most Sun platforms I have used, and it
is proprietary (to somebody). Basically, it is the upstream package

I understand your nitpicks, although I had never thought about it
meaning 'generate scripts' before now. :)
