Hi, from [1], I see that emboss ships 261 programs in
/usr/bin/ including cool names like "banana", "chaos", "needle",
"water", "wobble" ... so this means all these names
can't be re-used forerver :-(

Current /usr/bin/yank [2] is 10 lines of code, the new tool
seems more usefull for more users;
and from the animated .gif on the project page,
it's supposed to be something short that's called
frequently, so the contrived name with the hypen
will make it hard to use... 

Maybe this can be also be solved by documenting how to set a bash alias,
or a symlink in /usr/local/bin .
