    If the author names their software "Wt", why are you naming the package
    "witty" and not "wt"?

    Because "wt" is so short and common that "apt-cache search wt" returns
    and awful lot of results. Witty only returns this package's returns
    and is 100% official: the SourceForge page for the project is
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/witty and the mailing list is called
    witty-interest.

    $ aptitude search 'wt'|wc -l
    55

    $ aptitude search '^wt$'|wc -l

    0

    The above is just data and not a desire to affect the package name either way.
    It is a very interesting project so I am happy you are adding it.

    Still, though, two-character package names should *not* be encouraged.
