Wow, that's arrogant, not only reserving the package's filename
(arguably acceptable to ensure integrity) but the names of many
possible derivatives/competitors.  Amusingly, it's only the
filename and you can probably make an symlink or some other
alias while complying with this, so it's more comedy than a bug.
