FYI, macho-dump doesn't exist anymore.
That said, I understand the concerns for binutils equivalent (and maybe
opt), but I don't think it's too much a concern for all the other
tools. All the binutils equivalent have llvm- prefix as far as I can tell.
Also, as a downside, prefixing llvm- makes the name more verbose
(which I dislike).

My $0.02,
