As developers, we're system integrators, and ensuring that components
of the system don't have names that could cause unnecessary confusion
or problems falls under that remit. The latest version of debmake
doesn't appear to contain /usr/bin/done any more, but problems with
the other names I raised in my original bug report still apply.

I'm reopening these bugs, and bringing this public discussion to
debian-devel as requested.
