I'm all for that. I'm just lousy at coming up with them, so fire away.
I don't know if your examples were suggestions, but I don't think any of them
quite fits. Eseal looks like a misspelling of Eazel, Mynorca sounds like
Menorca (a beach resort island in the Canary Islands) and Reylap well, hmm,
just doesn't have that ring to it. What, me picky? :-)
I kind of like the sound of "Punch" (matches well with Smash, one of my other
projects ;), unfortunately all the other projects with "punch" in their names
is about virtual time punch cards. Also, it doesn't have the subject
connection that Rocky does. If we go for a word without meaning, I think we
should make up a whole new word rather than use something completely
Portmap is a unix system daemon, so it's definitely "taken" already.
I'd say Rocky is still our top contender so far. But I'm not in a hurry to
make a decision about this, so everyone just keep it in the back of your heads
for a while and post a message here if you come up with something snappy.
