For such a simple tool, do we really need such many versions?

At least you've asked the question. I'd love to think that there was a
proper evaluation of BSD which versus GNU which prior to the latter
being uploaded to NEW, and there's a compelling reason that the GNU one
was chosen; but if so there's no evidence of that on -devel. :(

It seems to install to /usr/bin/which.gnu, implying that you could upload /usr/bin/which.bsd if you so desire; what's the issue?
