Well this is a question in two parts.  What *is* our product name right now?
So it should remain until the 'next major release', e.g. at least 2.4 if not
through 2.x.

The second part is what should the next Apache HTTP Server be called?  That's
what started the thread about "d", and I think your ideas are more speaking
to that 'next name'.  Which isn't a bad discussion to start now, thank you.
