maybe you missed Havoc's mail earlier or you want a more thorough
Here is Havoc's description again just in case.

I hate acrnonyms, and would strongly recommend and hope that you choose a
name that people at least have a half decent chance of geussing what it
stands for any sort of an abbreviation such as libsnotify (may not 'snot'
such a good name) maybe libstartnote...
I dunno, you get the gist and now while it is new is the chance you have
to type a few extra character and make things more understanble and make
life easier and more understandable for ordinary programmers. You know
that it will be well nigh impossible to change change the name later.
Calum, does the usability guideline cover suggested program Gnaming
Konventions yet? (and i mean in a much stronger way than just changing the
start menu labels).
Born Critic, I'll learn diplomacey eventually.
