  Any name that will resolve after two or three keystrokes should be fine
  since when I hit <TAB> the rest will follow. Not sure about the "tcl"
  name though, it does not map to functionality or purpose of the programm.

 The xlib6g package Conflicts with xlib6 (<< 3.3-5) ; therefore, I guess
 that packages should be compiled with both xlib6 and xlib6g .
 Could someone confirm that this is true, I was going to file bug reports
 on some packages that depend on both xlib6 and xlib6g, but would rather
 first make sure if I should.
