I don't know what's *your* idea of open source, but I stand by my  
comments and I've been practicing and advocating open source since 1991.

More seriously, let's not attack each other's conception of open  
source, and focus on the question at hand.

Everyone, member of the open source community or not, is free to start  
a new implementation of an existing piece of software or library. This  
is a good thing when the existing software is in maintenance mode and  
not evolving anymore, or so crufty that a new design is needed, etc.  
But when we are speaking of two young projects, under the umbrella of  
the same organisation, I think this is very wrong.
