I agree with Patrice. I couldn't find any conflicts in Debian ATM, but
still those names shouldn't be used.

I also think that it serves the users better if the programs have
self-explaining names. Like fontconvert-xg2pl (just guessing).

Are all those executables actually meant to be used directly by the
document author? If there's actually a script which calls them, one
could also consider installing them in /usr/lib/gellmu.
