just rename it. Then you can benefit from the hacking of other people
and if one day you share your hacks then your neighbour won't have
problems either. What some people do is to just add a prefix to their
objects/abstractions/modules/classes etc. like [sttReverb] or
something like that. One option is to batch process ('find and
replace') the files.
