Pick best-known of the two names

Pick best-known of the two names

Parent article: Beryl and Compiz: back together again?

At the moment, Beryl is much better known. The
main project should switch its name to Beryl to capture
the better brand awareness.

Really? I hadn't heard of Beryl until I read this article, but I had
heard of Compiz.

Calling the core Compiz and the plugins Beryl, as suggested above, sounds
sensible to me.

Why not call the core "core" and the plugins "plugins"?

That just sounds like needless jargon to me.

The words "core" or "plugins" could be found hard to defend as brand names.

Why would you want to use brand names for the subcomponents of a project? That would be like calling kernel/drivers "Alchemy," or /usr/share/doc "Brontosaurus." Yes, they're much more trademarkable, but does that really help anything?
