But giving a binary such a general name as "recover" is a really
stupid idea in the first place. If you don't want to rename it,
move it to /usr/lib/<packagename>/, but don't add arbitary
conflicts because of such bad naming of executeables.

(/usr/bin/todo in devtodo is another offender, though I'll keep
it for now since there seems to be no other "todo".)
