Hi All;

We're currently trying to figure out the right way to handle a name
conflict in Debian between racket and an rss aggregator named


I don't use the command /usr/bin/planet myself, so I was wondering if
anybody could explain the likely disruption caused by (hypothetically)
renaming it. In particular is it likely to be somether where people are
using it from scripts or cron jobs, or would making a shell alias
(alias planet planet-racket) suffice to avoid retraining fingers?
