IMHO, a more sensible question is whether there is any reason to put
them in the same package.

xwd and xwud are very different programs. xwd is a screen-grabbing
utility, while xwud is an image viewer. The only thing they really
have in common is the XWD image format (defined in XWDFile.h, which is
part of the xproto package).
