I think that the further away from something you get, the more vague
your perceptions are.  For instance, there are a lot of people who still
think that Apache == The Web Server.  When seen from afar, I'd tend to
agree that a move to "" is going to be noticed by
most people who are not looking carefully as "project now associated

This is a theory of mine that seems to be born out by talking with
people, but it's not really an exact science.  What say the marketing folks?
