If Shawn is not willing to change the name of his library, and if it is
true that this library was publicly available and announced on the Humps,

Nobody has any authority to tell the developers what to do,
but if their project pretends to target the whole community and aims at
getting widely accepted, they'd better comply with basic social rules,
