@iaroslavski I would prefer to discuss this in private than here, but my argument is that the name `skipByte` came from Laurent's code, and that Laurent's code was clearly derived from my own within a fork of my repository. I linked the commits where you changed `skipByte` to `passLevel` and Laurent changed my name `canSkipLevel` to `skipByte`. 

For me, this raises questions about the independence of your work from Laurent's, and Laurent's work is clearly derived from my own (and I don't think anyone is disputing the latter). I would be happy to sort this out in private.
