Well, the name is correct, then. I was not aware of jlha as a library.

I don't know if it is "bad" as there is a lib jlha. But my personal
preference would be to name the *package* either jlha-utils (or
libjlha-utils, maybe) or jlha-bin/libjlha-bin, and name the tool itself jlha
(i.e. you get the jlha library, and if you call the jlha java binary, you
get the jlha tool).
