I ask:
	Is the point in this whole debate to "Win",  or just to distribute
free software?  I say change the name rather than *bother* with a fight.
I'd rather expend Debian's (Mr. Perens'?) money/time distributing the
package than arguing about what we call it.  It's a simple change to make,
we'll make a note someplace that xtnt resembles "that other game with the
blocks" and then go on to do other things.
