Subject: nvram-wakeup: filename /usr/sbin/time is unfortunate
Package: nvram-wakeup
Version: 0.97-12
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice if /usr/sbin/time could be renamed. Otherwise this
produces unexpected behaviour when the (widely used) package time is
also installed. Then calling time as normal user measures cpu resource
usage, whereas root acts completely different.
