Yet another heretical idea to resolve any name conflicts might be:

* Place all executables not in /usr/bin,
  but in /usr/lib/argyll-0.51a/

* Create a script /usr/bin/argyll, containing

  export PATH
  exec "$@"

Then the commands could be called as e.g.

   "argyll profile ..."


   "argyll icclink ..."

   "ARGYLL_VERSION=0.50 argyll cctiff ..."
   (to run an older version of the command)

I keep thinking about this, but haven't struck on a good alternative.
Simple things like "plink" etc. are already widely used for other tools.
"argylllink" is too long winded, "agllink" is too cryptic. Got any
suggestions ? (I'd want to change "profile" as well, as it clashes with
some system tools). Besides, I got to "icclink" first! :-)

I'm prepared to distribute it, but I'm not prepared to maintain it.
