In that light, cordova seems like the best name to me.  Googling it, I saw
the github repo of Brian's as the first hit on the second page of hits; but
that's just me and my browser.  Also, there's this (luckily, different
spelling): .  You can just smell that
Corinthian Leather.

I know the name "WebKeg" was tossed around, but was that a joke?  On one
hand, it implies "lots of beer" to me, which is perhaps not a great
association.  On the other hand, I'm reminded of the Big Keg o' Health from
Unreal Tournament (some version before most of you were born, prolly).  I
could see a barrel busting out with awesome as a neat "logo" image.  I like
"web" in the name, compared to "device", since this project is more about
exploiting web technologies rather than just devices - there are the
"desktop" versions of the runtime to consider as well.
