Is releasing changes to other peoples' software really the equivalent of
"the Far West"?

Isn't that the entire point of releasing something under the GPL instead of,
say, a shared source license?

If you don't like the work he did, by all means, disassociate yourself from
it, but please, don't say that you're not going to release any more software
just because someone released a change to a GPL program of yours.
