I heavily use some of the scripts that come with expect, i.e. unbuffer
and kibitz. Installed from source on other OSs (i.e. Solaris), these
scripts get installed to a normal bin dir by default. Under Debian,
older versions installed to some doc location, and newer versions
install to a bin directory but with the name prefixed with "expect_".
Both behaviors cause problems, especially for other scripts that call
unbuffer. If I had to pick, I'd prefer the older behavior -- at least
I could set $PATH to encompass both the expect doc dir and the normal
bin dirs, and then scripts could find unbuffer wherever it is. The
"expect_" prefix requires an additional level of detection to figure
out the appropriate script name on this system. Even better would be
to install the scripts with the normal name to /usr/bin,
This is somewhat similar to the spirit of bug 495605, but I didn't
think that bug goes far enough.

expect (184.108.40.206-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer Sergei Golovan <firstname.lastname@example.org> (closes: #543839).
* New upstream CVS snapshot.
* Switched to upstream which maintains CVN at SourceForge.net because
Don Libet doesn't have time to develop Expect anymore. Therefore, changed
* Switched to Tcl/Tk 8.5 (closes: #512150).
* Don't call configure and build targets twice anymore (closes: #441114).
* Upstream includes patch which fixes empty writes (closes: #421187).
* The new upstream fixed a regression which didn't allow to read from stdin
* Added README.source with a link to /usr/share/doc/quilt/README.source
where an instruction on how to patch upstream sources is located.
* Removed examples from /usr/share/doc/expect-dev/examples because all of
them are shipped in /usr/bin directory. This makes uncompressing them
unnecessary (closes: #495605).
* Added links all expect_* script to their original names, except mkpasswd,
rftp and weather to avoid conflicts with other packages
(closes: #508320, #532332).
* Upstream removed useless "puts hello" from multixterm script
