Usually we do handle this by a first come, first served policy and
according to this in a new package like wcstools the binary should be
renamed (and properly documented to inform the users about this change).
I'd suggest smething like wgs-remap or alternatively you can provide a
/usr/lib/wgstools/remap and ask users to set their PATH accordingly to
not break existing scripts or things like this.
Do you know anything which is against this plan?
