... and had to fight an ugly battle over the question whether the
reimplementation was legitimate reuse of ideas or code theft.

I don't understand why you have to be so insulting.  I was making a
false claim because I didn't know better, but I don't consider that a
good reason to claim everything I am saying is bullshit and start a
bar fight.

Anyway this is not only getting ugly but also way off topic.  I'm out.
