This has been a long source of tension between moreutils' author and the
debian packager (probably fedora and other distros too). I don't know off
the top of my head what solution those distros have come up with for the
name conflict but they may be doing something worth investigating and

I have made frequent use of mispipe and ts, and would probably use other
pieces of moreutils if I remembered them better, so I'd use and appreciate
a cygwin package of them - assuming a solution is found to the potential
name conflict.
