This seems an aweful lot like the nodejs / node situation. Let's not let
anyone take "melange" and use cream-melange and openstack-melange :)

No one has any more "right" to the name :)

Ubuntu has gdm3 --> gdm, I mean, it's not unheard of. Although, after
it's upstream, I'm guessing it'll get removed and sunk.

Let's kill off a namespace thing before we get there.
