After a dicussion with the author we decided to name it lsh-utils and
make a conflict with lsh. He also will discuss on the mailing-list for
lsh if the complete package will be renamed from lsh to lsh-utils
because of the name conflict. I think we will find a good solution and
hopefully change the name from lsh to lsh-utils. So from now the
debian-package of lsh (free ssh) will be found under the name lsh-utils.
