Without a doubt, there are examples of poor naming of files. You've found
one. It would better be called "samba-testparm". The samba-common package
contains more such poorly named files: /usr/bin/net, /usr/bin/profiles
samba-client contains: /usr/bin/rpcclient

It's no justification for letting more such files into the distribution,
however. The more packages like that, the higher the risk of implicit
conflicts between existing packages or packages to be added in the future.
