Personally, I like the shorter name "Apache OpenOffice".  On the other
hand, I realize that my personal preference is meaningless.  This
might be a good question to bring over to the new ooo-marketing list
(once set up) for discussion.  I'd especially be interested in some
analysis of the pros and cons of the alternatives.  If we decide based
on the aggregate of the project members' personal preferences we'll
probably not make an optimal choice.  The analysis is key, I think.
