IMHO pm is a fine choice.  I don't like deity because it bears no
relation to what the program does, while trove may be a bit too
obscure for non-native speakers.

On the other hand, pm for package manager is very suitable.  And the
two-letter namespace is suffiently precious that you should jump at an
opportunity to get such a name for your program accepted.  (Grab it
now, before someone else comes along.)
