Ok, after trademark searching against our previously voted-upon list, it
seems "Apache Message Broker" seems to be the most reasonable...

This gets straight to the point since it contains two different
messaging implementations, WS-Eventing and WS-Notifications.... 

How does everyone feel about this?

And Rohit's <http://www.mod-pubsub.org/>, which has been an Apache httpd
module for a long time, and Tibco's old claims on anything having to so
with publish/subscribe.  Why pick an old name for a new project?
