Also sendmail, which is also known as newaliases, mailq, hoststat, and
purgestat -- but none of these programs come directly from GNU, as test
does.  Splitting test and [ seems to me a mistake of too much purity.  I
think the guidelines should list a few examples (the linker seems a good
one) and a few counter-examples (sendmail due to long useage, test due to
the need for [ to be exactly the same as test except for requiring a last
option of ].
