Is it gnupg or gpg?

The two names for GnuPG, "gnupg" (package, library, website, and mailing
list name) and "gpg" (executable name) are a bit troublesome.  I suppose
it's too late to change to pick one or the other.  I prefer the name "gpg"
but if any change were to be made I suspect it would be easier to change
the executable name.  Any comments?
