Nowhere I have written that I will not rename the binaries from EMBOSS.
Indeed, I will move them to /usr/lib/emboss and document in the README
how to access them.

However, in the process of solving that problem, I found two
unmaintained pacages. One has already been orphaned by others, and its
maintainer seems OK with this since he did not react.  I am just asking
if it is OK if I orphan pscan for the same reason, expecting that it
will remove a burden for its maintainer.

Hope that explains,
