"*Have*" to? Why? Other applications manage to provide unique names. Why
does being a GNUstep application give you the right to claim generic
names like "mail", "editor", etc.

Claiming necessity doesn't make it so. If it's simply a convention
of the GNUstep developer's, then your claim to have considered mixed
systems is bogus.

Note that I'm not promoting the idea that all GNUstep packages names
must begin with "gnustep-". I find the ".app" convention sufficiently
clear; in fact, I assume pretty much anthing with a "." in it's name

If we are going to allow generic names, then obviously they would be
applied to the most commonly used or "best for the novice" example, so
I'm pretty sure that GNUstep apps aren't going to get them.
