Great work!

I feel a bit melancholy that this could be one of the the last non-PQ
kexes.

When does the GLV patent expire again? I seem to remember it being
raised when the paper first came out - has there been any big change
since then (patent grants, etc)? Might it be a problem for this?

I see Michael's point. I like the name anyway. It's short, memorable,
and if there *is* an IP problem, we could always bikeshed about the name
until it's gone and hope no-one has a quantum computer by then. ;)
