Because it's hard to tell what is right...The rule for what's right is
already political(or policy) problem...

Because the situation for execline is too rare for me. I haven't met
other software that claims the binary names which are too familiar for
most people, like cd.
And I'm mostly agree that binaries like cd/umask/wait are not POSIX


So it seems to me that we can't reach a result that satisfies to both side.

I hope I can refrain to package exeline, but it's a dependency of s6.
However the binaries(cd, umask, wait) that cause problem are not
dependency of s6. It's unfair to stop packaging s6 since that.
