(Speaking with my tf5 maintainer hat on.) The current arrangement of
these packages is weird, but I'm not sure how much trouble it's causing.
tf ships /usr/games/tf and tf5 ships /usr/bin/tf5. Both of them manage
the /usr/bin/tf alternative. So you do get different things depending on
whether you have /usr/games before /usr/bin in your path.
My preference would be to retire the /usr/games path entirely and have tf
install itself as /usr/bin/tf4, but I'm not responsible for the tf
package. (TinyFugue is no more a "game" than irssi is. I use it all the
time to connect to work chatservers that we use instead of IRC.)
