Hehe... what about dapple? It has the DAP (Digital Audio Player) in its
name, but it doesn't stress it in any way...

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
quite fits. Eseal looks like a misspelling of Eazel, Mynorca sounds like
Menorca (a beach resort island in the Canary Islands) and Reylap well,
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
projects ;), unfortunately all the other projects with "punch" in their
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
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
make a decision about this, so everyone just keep it in the back of your
for a while and post a message here if you come up with something
