I rarely if at all use the project names so for me at least their size
wouldn't matter. Besides, given the amount of projects at Jakarta, a
limitation of 3 or 4 makes it very hard to define meaningful names.
Not to mention that something like IO or LANG is quite generic - if
there would be projects that provide similar functionality in Perl or
C# then we would run into trouble (IO2, LANG2 ?). At least they could
be prefixed like this:


etc., or something similar.
