The list of Adobe products in the text at the bottom was created by me
from a template given to me by Adobe lawyers.  Apparently, I missed
listing a few products.  Way upthread I said I got permission from Adobe
legal to do the following:

"If I missed listing a trademark, I’ll add it in
the first commit after this donation lands in the repo, but where the
trademark names are just used in an example to show people how to put a
list of things in a UI widget, I’ll just replace those names with
something not trademarked."

This is now the third time I’ve put these words in this thread.  So either
I’m not communicating clearly, or there is a problem with executing such a
mitigation that I still don’t understand.
