    I've used your implementation for conformance testing (comparing
results of checksum routines, opening connections between implementations,
etc). So yes, I've leveraged off your work a bit.

    However, for a variety of reasons, I did write my implementation
from scratch -- not one line was taken from yours. I think that qualifies
as independent, without the quotation marks.

    It seemed to me that using another implementaton for conformance testing
was only reasonable practice and did not require explicit acknowledgement.
If you feel somehow slighted, my apologies, that was certainly not my intent.
