I second that too.

I would also like this situation to get fixed.  apt-cache search gnustep
shows other similar abuses, which unfortunatelly have already been let
into the archive:

imageviewer - Image Viewer for GNUstep
preferences - GNUstep Preferences application
terminal - Term Emulator for GNUstep
textedit - Basic text editor for GNUstep
viewpdf - Portable Document Format (PDF) viewer for GNUstep

OTOH I can also see more than 20 packages w/ "gnustep-*" prefix, which
I think is a good sign.  I think this convention should simply be
followed by more gnustep packages, especially the ones with generic

gnustep-connect ? - makes sense for me.
