You're right, and I'm reassigning this bug to distcc-pump _and_ pump. Maintainers, please possibly choose different names. I know this isn't a proper "name clash" (thus the severity not being raised to RC), but I believe it's kinda confusing having two programs with the same name in different paths, and relying on $PATH ordering.
