I did an apt-file search gdrive and it didn't find any binaries with
that name, so the current archive doesn't contain anything in that
regard. There is a GLib class called 'GDrive' [1], but since that's
C API, I don't see how that could affect this.

However, a quick web search revealed software package who's upstream
name is 'gdrive', also for accessing Google Drive:


The binary it provides is also named just 'drive', but with
completely different command line options. Both packages appear to
be written in Go. The one that was proposed in this ITP seems to be
more feature-complete, though, at least from looking at the README.
