Makes sense.

I totally agree.

 I think your answers above clear up some of the confusion - I was just
trying to clarify things to understand if the original suggestion - to make
sure only guacamole/guacamole had the newer versions (vs.
glyptodon/guacamole) - made sense.  For the purposes of this discussion
glyptodon/guacamole is a "third party" to the Guacamole Project, so I
definitely see and agree with your point - the Project should not worry
about trying to control/sanitize/dictate/etc. what is posted there.
