Just a light comment. We have affectionate internal names for projects,
e.g. BibleCS, but end users don't really care what toolkit we use. When
releasing a public package, it might be useful to dub the product
something happy and shiny. Just hoping to alleviate some tension
regarding the name.
PS. I'm excited to see the updated work from both of you!
