What is your opinion about this name. Would you agree if we used the
same in Debian ?

That's not a bad idea. The existing name is hideous frankly and it's
just "getting around to it" that's prevented me picking something
else. libstaden-read I like as it has a namespace I can use for others too.

When I read the first mail of Charles I've thought "Oh no, not 'libread'".
So I really agree with libstaden-read and it is good to know that other
distributors tried a reasonable rename.  Lets try to stick compatible with
these - and perhaps we could release this upstream soon.

Kind regards
