My apologies. I shouldn't have generalized here. As you pointed out
there's a difference between having a problem with the name and
refusing to accept the software because of the name and despite better

So what I suggest we do is to keep the name, but perhaps we can indeed
do something about the way it is perceived. It could help to use the
full name more. Not saying that we should avoid using the acronym but
perhaps it would be good if we could try to mention the full name in
release announcements and such at least once. If someone wants to
review the README, NEWS. INSTALL files as well as the man-pages for
this, that would be appreciated.
