We have been using 'Bantay' (bahn-tai) as our internal project name  
for the PIP server/consumer we've built. It means 'guard' in Tagalog.  
It is the name of the dog that Zed found on Flickr (Creative Commons)  
and put on the Mongrel homepage (http://mongrel.rubyforge.org).  
Mongrel is the Ruby web server that runs the PIP server and the Yadis  
handler. After asking the owner what the dog's name meant, we thought  
it was appropriate for the project. That may not be the case for this  
larger effort, but if anyone likes it I think it might be a nice fit.

For what it's worth, I don't have an issue with 'Heraldry', and I  
think 'Ibid' might be too confusing.
