I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't use the name TortoiseSVN for your app.
That name is for this app, and you shouldn't use the same name! I mean,
you don't see all databases use the same name either, even though
they're basically doing the same thing.
"TortoiseSVN for Gnome" isn't a different name. It would confuse users a
lot, and most will think it's from the same developers. Also, we then
would have to change the name of our app to "TortoiseSVN for Windows",
and we definitely won't do that!

So please, feel free to use our code and start your own project, but use
a different name!
