Are grace and grace6 “api-compatible”? Is it safe to switch directly to
grace6? Isn't there a reason for 2 packages?

Maybe, I'm not sure. We're just an user of the package, so I don't
really have an opinion on this (if it works :) ).

I don't really like the idea for us to patch the source to use the
renamed binaries, so I'd prefer continuing to call the original ones,
but if it's painful for you it might be possible.
