My thoughts are "I have been confused and thus I believe that other users
will be confused in the future". This is why I believe it's best to
rename. Furthermore, there are no file clashes yet, but the day
where someone will write a python wrapper for "zimlib" (and this is
on the roadmap apparently), it might become a real issue.

That said, I'm not here to impose anything to anyone. I just wanted
to inform you so that both upstream are aware of the potential conflict
and so that they can handle it properly.
