The difference between anydesk-bin and anydesk-debian is that the latter
uses a custom version of pango because the most recent one seems to
cause issues for some people, see the package comments.

At the time of accepting PRQ#18092, I thought that the binary from the
Debian package was built differently than the one provided by the
.tar.gz file, but that is actually not the case apparently, so
"anydesk-debian" might not be the most fitting name.

Since upstream is closed source, the package anydesk-bin using  system
pango could now be renamed to "anydesk".
