  This would confuse users, because execline is not a library, it's
a package with binaries (and that also includes a library for
execline helper development, but that should naturally go into
an execline-dev subpackage).

  Why is it so hard to do things the right way instead of looking for
technical workarounds to political problems (which never works)?
Do you do this with other packages?
