Thanks.  So I think ap/dp/... should stay out of PATH by not being
prompted to /usr/bin or, if they must, have a more-specific, longer,
name there, but keep a presence in the old non-PATH location for legacy
uses that had to state their location.  Even `dateparse' isn't great
since dp is fairly specific to nmh's needs;  nmh-dp?  There's a track
record of /usr/bin/*-* existing, e.g. Debian.

Cheers, Ralph.
