The only problem is that all of the ploticus docs refer to its
executable as pl.  This would certainly confuse some users, at least
for a while.  Of course I could add some text in the ploticus README
file, but most users probably wouldn't see it.

Is it possible to do as Igor suggested, and create a symlink from
/usr/bin/pl to /usr/bin/ploticus iff /usr/bin/pl doesn't already
exist?  If the user then later installed SWI-Prolog, would the
installer blow up or fail to install the Prolog /usr/bin/pl?
