Yes,  first i heard of it was when i was asked to switch out csound and csound-
python for olpcsound.   Had i been asked before hand i could have suggested a 
way that the csound spec could have produced  csound csound-python and csound-
olpc.  but what is done is done.  I personally don't like anything being 
called olpc-foo,  I think we should write code that is useful outside of OLPC, 
useful to the whole world.  In which case  the naming is really a poor choice.
