I've no idea why you don't want to use the name 'smoke' as it's a pretty
important part of the smoke language bindings. But as long as it ends up being
installed so people will be able to widely use it, I think that is more
important than the name.

Yes, that sounds a good idea. I've been meaning to write a blog about how to
create smoke libs, and maybe we should have something on TechBase about it.
