If this were a copyright issue, that would matter. But for a trademark
issue, it doesn't matter even a little bit.

My suggestion: expunge all references to "subversionkeeper" from the web

"svk" which, like "KFC," doesn't stand for anything. I think that
should avoid any issues of confusing similarity.
