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.
