The decision also states by example a way to resolve a situation of clashing
binary names with an interpreter involved, which is useful to know when you are
faced with a similar situation.
I for one don't think of the approach chosen as very hard to come up
with, although it might be useful at some point. My point is really
about the way this decision was announced though, and unless a
significant number of developers are expected to face a situation of
clashing binary names with an interpreter involved, I still think it
would have been best to announce the decision differently.
