Oliver, you probably misunderstood me. I once put in a lot of work into that 
project, but that was in the past, so today I don't have the right to tell 
anyone putting his work into the same project what to do with it. If someone 
thinks something needs to be done or not done, do it the way you think. 

My time is fully covered with other stuff like a wife and two kids plus 
running a company. If you have reached a similar state in life, you will 
understand that having time for free software projects (if you don't make a 
living out of it) is a luxury that most people can't afford when they are 
married ;-)

So, please just take my mail as an information about trademark issues and what 
you do with that information is up to the guys running the project (which is 
not me anymore ;-)

We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
