zim in zimlib is actually ZIM which stands for Zeno IMproved file format
which was derived from Zeno file format.

I will ask upstream but a couple of project depends on this library and
this name one being kiwix which I maintain but it duplicates this source
which is the reason why I ITPed it.

But as I said name is actually abbreviation and renaming it doesn't make
sense. What do you think?

Yeah first when I saw about zim in one of your blog post I got confused
and thought zimlib is already packaged :-)
