You noticed that I want to keep HttpComponents as the name of what
we're doing now, yes? I am suggesting to find something that is
non-descriptive and non-offensive to anyone for use as the domain
name and in the list of Apache projects. That's also based on the
assumption that some application project might eventually join us
"at some distant point in the future". In that case, HC wouldn't
be an appropriate description for all our activities anymore.

Agreed. We'll see whether there are other opinions next week.
If not, I'll try to find time for phrasing a TLP proposal next
weekend, using HttpComponents as the name. I'll probably use the
Jakarta Wiki, as the vote will have to be held on general@j.a.o.
