Felix is first and foremost the "community name". As it will receive 
felix.apache.org when it graduates.

Secondly, but more common to the wider public, is the "Product".

Richard suggests that "Felix == The OSGi container of the Felix project." 
which makes perfect sense to me.

Assuming that the scope of "the Felix community" is beyond the container, and 
also includes bundles for various purposes, those _should not_ be Felix 
specific, hence possibly detached from the Felix name for technical reasons, 
but associated with "the Felix community" for social reasons.

Tricky this one.

Personally, I think I lean towards Richard's definition of the "Felix Product" 
and have a "FeLib" (just kidding) of bundles under one or more umbrella 
names, with mostly descriptive names.
