Following up to myself: the problem here is that since 'ao' is already
taken, distributions wishing to include your package will need to invent
a new name.  It might be better for you to choose that new name, to
prevent a situation where each distro picks a different name, which
would be rather confusing for users wishing to install your package.

To make this more concrete, I would like to add your package to GNU
Guix, where 'ao' is the aforementioned audio library.  What name shall
I choose for your package?
