Thanks for volunteering Matthias!

The library is indeed a bit of a large conglomerate that will be tricky to
review - unfortunately the three parts are quite intertwined from an
implementation POV :-( So I guess renaming would be the easiest option for
us: it's something that Paul and I have discussed in the past, but we didn't
come up with a better name: any suggestions?

Thanks, John.
