For additional background on the name, we went through a few
iterations already on the Jackrabbit dev@ list:

1) Apache CMIS (the name is already used for the standard)
2) Apache CloudMist ("mist" has a negative meaning in German)
3) Apache Camaïeu (hard to pronounce and spell for many of us)
4) Apache Chemistry

So far everyone has liked the last name, though your point about
potential confusion is valid.
