/usr/games is a swamp for another time I think.  I guess it contains
an awful lot of things with clashing names.

Nowadays those name clashes, and the expectation that people writing
games might not be so good about namespace questions as other software
(ha ha ha), might be part of the TBH rather flimsy justification for
/usr/games's existence.
