Unless you're adopting the programs verbatim and will be tracking
upgrades, I would prefer that you didn't use the names regardless,
although you may if you want.  I have no intention of stopping you or
anything, but I think it would be confusing to have multiple programs with
the same name but different functionality or different flags, and it would
cause us problems in Debian and at Stanford if the MIT Kerberos
distribution conflicted with the kstart package.
