ooh, a bikeshed!

although I do agree, "build is a bit of a generic name for a binary" were amongst my first thoughts when I learned about the OBS.

A simple one letter prefix variant would be 'bbuild' in reference to

How then about a²build (a2build). That seems to get even less google
results (up to this mailing list post which will be archived soon...)
13 to count atm.

Also note: "a squared [away] build", which just fits the bill ;-)

I like these... the default build uid is abuild too.

both bbuild and a2build are short, easy to type, obviously "build" things and aren't a very generic word.

It's not far from the current command so not a pain for users.
