I think it's important that the name *not* be changed. There's no question that Kent's coordination was beneficial, and advanced the project considerably, but it did not give him a proprietary interest.

But there's a long history that's being carried on here, and given that a non-beta v2 was never released, it's not clear what benefit would come from a new name.

And it's not clear to me that any of us have the right to such a change under the GNU Public License.
