As someone who finds most of the Apache project names confusing and hard 
to remember (with the notable exception of the excellently-named "Apache 
HTTP Server") I'm all for something that actually says what it is.

I must admit that until now I had never heard the word "Ibid". Perhaps 
that makes me a philistine, but that doesn't change the fact that this 
word holds little meaning for me, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Can 
it at least have "ID" or "Identity" in it?
