We already have three different names for the name of the executable
"LDAP" on Mac OS X, "LDAP Studio.exe" and "LDAP Studio" on Linux
and the documentation has already three parts, one for each architecture
explaining how to launch LDAP Studio.

- the name of the project (product)
- the name of the generated executable.

IMO, the name of the project should stay as is LDAP Studio (ldapstudio is
not very sexy as project name).

I also think  the name of the executable should be switched to 'ldapstudio'
on Linux to avoid problems.
But I really don't like the idea of naming LDAP Studio as "ldapstudio" on
Mac and Windows (This is not the way applications are named on those
