Will do. As you'd expect/suspect I fully support the PSF's stance on this, but I
just think in terms of discussions where the benefit of the doubt will
be given to
both sides, a little more accuracy would go a long way.

After all, if someone has been using a name off and on, as well as making their
claim more tenuous (since even with a registered mark you have to defend use),
it also suggests that they did not see utility in the name for much of that time
period -- which could be viewed as implying that if you said "python"
people would
not think of them. (and of course most people have never heard of them
until now!)
