I don't know, but I would guess it is, if only because "Gordon Shumway" is the alias of ALF from the 80s tv show.

I actually don't think we're sharing any code with Gordon. But yes, the name is this obscure transitive-closure reference: (Adobe) Flash -> (Flash) Gordon -> (Gordon) Shumway.

wow. as someone born in the late '80s, thank you.
