I also find JHCHTTPCORE absolutely horrible. I chose this id as I 
thought it would be the most "politically correct" one. I would very 
much rather prefer HTTPCORE or JHTTPCORE. Do you envisage a particular 
Jira id naming convention for Jakarta projects? At this point it is 
still not too late for us to scrap the project and start over with a 
different (better) project id.
