I may or may not use this crate in the future. I'm pre-registering it regardless because crates.io is first come, first serve:
We have had, and will continue to have, a first-come, first-served policy on crate names 
We do not have any policies to define squatting, and so will not hand over ownership of a package for that reason. 
Note that I am not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the rust team or crates.io . I'm just a random unaffiliated person who likes using Rust.
I dislike bureaucracy and people dragging their feet on addressing legitimate issues.
Fixing this issue
Email the crates io team . I'm doubtful anything meaningful will happen for a while.
