Why man is man and not mandb ?

[resent due to lists failure. Sorry if duplicate]

The upstream package  mandb-2.3.10  is debianized as  man_2.3.10

Can anybody tell me the reason of this change in the name?
Maybe Bruce, that originally packaged it?

I have a bug opened (a minor one, anyway) that could be solved simply
using the original name (being the whatis searching sensible to the word
"man" as the name of a directory).

Thank you
