Depends. alternatives are only sensible if the commandline interface
is largely compatible between two programs offering the alternative.
(If the command line interface is basically nonexisting, as for many
GUI programs this is not an issue.)
NMUs aren't an insult, they're not an attack, and they're
not something to avoid or be ashamed of.
