How would that compare to the existing OSM clients currently in the
archive? Some of those are:

  emerillon - map viewer for the GNOME desktop
  gosmore - Openstreetmap.org viewer / wayfinder / search client
  josm - Editor for OpenStreetMap
  merkaartor - map editor for OpenStreetMap.org

Why can't you call it Cosmo or Osmo-Clint or any better name? (Osmo is
already used and not related to OSM)?
