But isn't a bit stupid to build three different binaries with
almost nothing different ?
What about using aliases ?

I don't know why the authors of GNU Coding standards
do not want a binary with different names,  but in fact
using this mechanism or tunneling it into a shell would
be much better than three almost identically binaries!
