The full name of mls is MailListStat. However, the binary file, the
upstream archive file, and all of the source files are called mls --
hence I choose that name. I'll be glad to have to package renamed,
though.  MailListStat would be a natural choice (or maybe
mail-list-stat). I wonder, though, if we rename the Debian package,
should the name of the installed upstream binary be changed to match
the Debian package name?

If the consensus is to rename the package, I'm not sure how to ask the
archive maintainers to change a name.

Thanks for the helpful discussion on this issue.
