I can understand the frustration of a confused victim that reads "aseqmm" and
thinks it is something different of what it really is, then he reads the
description that says "This library is a C++ wrapper around the ALSA library
sequencer interface, using Qt4 objects, idioms and style". This poor victim
must be protected, even if that means stoning me preventively.
So, I am thinking about changing the name of the library for "Lapidation" in
the next release. It will be interesting to write a little chapter for the
documentation, explaining the name's history and why it had to be changed.
What do you think?

I don't imagine a crowd of angry people complaining the restaurant's owner to
force him to change the name. If you don't like the meal or the name, you
should avoid dinning there. That's all.
I feel part of the community of Linux Audio Developers. I know that there is a
majority using certain toolkits and technologies, they are different to mine.
I'm alone or among a little minority. And so what? Are we developers or
