What is wrong with the name excel?

Something that does work is to define a bash function name excel.  Within that
you could invoke an executable called myexcel, etc.  An alias probably works,
too.  Not sure about a symlink (and they come in different flavors).  But
these just paper over that weird special-ness.  Windows is odd ...
