Yes, I think we can change the header and library to "qimageblitz" if that 
will solve the problem for you. 

I can also use a completely different name, but would hate to do that since 
people are already somewhat familiar with it. Looking at Blitz++ it doesn't 
look like it will create confusion among users since they are pretty 
different projects, but it may be better to take care of that now.
