Well, that `emboss` tool clearly appears to be lame in its approach:
it should provide a single CLI tool called `emboss` which would have
those "yank" et al as its subcommands so that anyone could do something
like `emboss yank ...` etc.
I'd say this should be reported as a bug upstream.
The original names could be provided as a compat package shipping a
bunch of shell one-liner scripts.
