I understand the intent of the clause. Nonetheless, it says that I must
ensure that the original names are never used. This is impossible. I can
put a clause in my license forbidding my licensees to change the names
back, but I cannot ensure that one of them will not violate the license and
do so anyway.
* You rename the file before you make any changes to it, unless the file
explicitly says that renaming is not required. Any such changed files
must be distributed under a license that forbids distribution of those
files and any files derived from them under the names used by the
original files in the distribution of The Program.
There are probably better ways to do this, but they would require extensive
rewriting of the license.
