I agree, redhat-config-display makes the most sense.  I can understand
if nobody would want to change the name of the app at this point...

... but I would...   <evil grin>   ;o)

Some options:

1) Rename app to redhat-config-display, and put a symlink
   called redhat-config-xfree86 so we're not confusing everyone.


2) Leave rpm package and app named as-is, and add a symlink
   'redhat-config-display'.  Not as nice, but same thing more or less.

3) Close this report "WONTFIX" with a 'buzz off and get a life you loser'
   comment.  ;o)

4) Close with customer friendly comment like "That's a neat idea.  I think
   we might persue such a change in a future release of Red Hat Linux and
   Red Hat Enterprise Linux, so I'm defering this for the future to
   investigate at a later date.  Thanks for the suggestion."  Then close
   it DEFERRED with no intention of looking at it again.

Ok, enough evil mischief from me for today.  ;o)

On a more serious note though, I think #1 would be a good idea, but it
isn't really that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things since
in the best-case scenario, no user should ever see the commandline

redhat-config-xfree86 has been renamed system-config-display
