Hello everyone! This is a hard one. I hope you won't be annoyed by this question.

Would you be willing to rename the tools "cutter" and "exploder" to something less generic, so they don't bear a high risk of conflicting with other programs that use the same names?

For example, there are two programs "cutter" which name their executables "cutter": A unit-testing project "cutter" ( http://cutter.sourceforge.net/ ) which exists for many years (but not as long as BfW), and a second one, a firewall/networking related "cutter" ( http://www.digitage.co.uk/digitage/software/cutter ).

Would it be considered too inconvenient, if the command-line tools "cutter" and "exploder" were named "wesnoth-cutter" and "wesnoth-exploder"? I understand the tools are not specific to BfW, so perhaps there would be an even more specific name?
