I'm OK with merging this without waiting for #1463, but if I may suggest something, we could have a wrapper shell function that does:
- if `faketime` is found, use it (i.e., invoke the rest of command-line with it); otherwise fallback to `datefudge`
- if `datefudge` is found, use it; otherwise exit 77

That way some other distros not shipping `faketime` don't need to introduce a new package until they decide to switch.
