What's in a Name

In case you haven't heard, Mozilla spawned a new project -- a 3d gaming engine for browsers. The name? Gladius. It's part of a general platform called Paladin. Yes, you heard that right. Paladin. I've even contacted the main developer, Alan Kligman. I haven't heard back from him about the name conflict, but I'm less than pleased. Especially in light of this thread on their Google Groups list. Gee, thanks, guys. I *really* don't want to have to rename my 3-year-old IDE because some people over at Mozilla chose the same name. Stay tuned.
