The packages provide different functionality.  They should therefore not
conflict.  If you cannot agree on who should rename their binary, both
packages will have to rename it.

See http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-files.html first

Tho I think that putty being the more senior one should have the right
of the name and not be forced to rename its binaries.
