Thanks, having limited familiarity with the LGPL, that really helps clear things up for me. Now, when I read the following, it makes a lot more sense:

"I would contend that there is no trademark violation, as permission for minor modifications to the source of Ion3 is implied by distributing the source."

And if what someone claimed here is true, that the hacked version was basically distributed, modified, Ion3 code with instructions to compile, then I would agree that they are within the terms of the original license. Even so, I still respect Tuomov for his efforts with Ion3 and wish him all the best. No sense in getting all bitter and bent out over the incident.
