pbmplus/netpbm & /usr/bin

Awhlie ago Ian Jackson and I discussed the problem of pbmplus sticking
itself in /usr/bin/pbmplus (Bug 1115). Since most people seem to want
netpbm over pbmplus, I am thinking Debian can just withdraw pbmplus,
and substitute netpbm.  In this case, we could merge it into /usr/bin.
What do people think?  The upside is that it will cleanly merge into
the $PATH by being in /usr/bin.  The downside is that it adds 128
binaries to the directory.  Since I already have some 500 binaries in
/usr/bin, I don't see it as much of a problem, but what do others
