Maybe have an 'openafs' command, which has all the other commands
as sub-commands.  Similar to the openssl command.  That command
would just be a front-end to the other excutables, and then those
executables could use whatever naming convention which works best
for installation, whether that be openafs-backup, afsbackup, or

An 'openafs' command implies that all the commands would be under
it, including 'fs', 'pts' etc.  If that isn't a path we want to
go down, then have the command be 'afsutil' or 'afstools'.  I do
think there is an advantage to having all of these findable via
a single command.  How many afs users even know that the 'up'
command exists, for instance?  It wouldn't surprise me too much
if I'm the only one at RPI.
