I think we should have just one which implementation in the archive. We
should (have) pick(ed) the best one for Debian. I believe (perhaps
unfairly... I'd love to be proven wrong) that the GNU implementation was
uploaded very quickly, without the BSD implementation being considered.
Perhaps the GNU one is the best fit for our needs. It would have been
nice to see that there was an evaluation.
