Personally, I think that the Apache daemon *should* be named apached
or something along those lines.
Compare with postgres, pg_ctl, pg_dump, or pg_config. Albeit postgres
is not consistent, they're all easily identifiable with PostgreSQL.
In my opinion, postgres, pg_ctl, pg_ccmp, and pg_config are better
names than, say, dbmsd, dbms_ctl, db_dump, and db_config. Also, we
recently deprecated the use of postmaster (easily confused with mail
systems) in favor of postgres. Looking at the binaries that are
installed for 8.2:
postmaster -> postgres
If these are all dumped into /usr/local/bin (as they sometimes are),
many of them are not readily identifiable with PostgreSQL. Shouldn't
they be? Compare with Subversion:
I find these names much more consistent.
