I sympathize, but at least use a variant on it. Picking that name and logo for an HTTP request library with Ruby and Python bindings is extremely bad form given that there's an existing HTTP server project that uses that name and is associated with that logo.
So rather than taking the opportunity to provide a lesson on project naming, you've let him think that it's a perfectly valid name. Now an entire development community is about to shoot down the project because you wanted to play the nice guy. How cruel!
