[mod_cluster-dev] Proposal for new project name

Hi Paul,
I kinda like the FloodTide name.

I'm willing to lend a hand with httpd modules (native part) and
porting docs, based off http://modcluster.io setup, content and tutorials.
I'm also the maintainer of mod_cluster in Fedora, the package that would
be affected.

 I'm bound to say that my effort is a community, voluntary one,
 unrelated to my current work assignments at Red Hat.

Lemme start throwing questions:

 * How do we refer to Undertow mod_cluster proxy implementation?
   Undertow FloodTide proxy? (indeed, any other name)

 * Are we going to get in touch with George Fleury who did mod_cluster for Nginx?
   Shouldn't we find engineering resources to build on current Nginx work (LGPL),
   rename it, update it, test it?

 * Could we seize the opportunity renaming brings and dedicate
   more Red Hat resources to the "reborn" project? The TO DO list is endless.

> * Backrush (the return of water seaward, down the foreshore of a

> * Uprush (a sudden upward surge or flow)
> * FloodTide (Period when tide level is rising)
> * TidalBore (a large wave caused by the funneling of a flood tide as
> it enters a long, narrow, shallow inlet)
> * TidalJet (fast-moving intrusion of water issuing from a narrow gap
> through a physical barrier between two bodies of water)
> * Upwell (to flow upward)
> * RogueWave (exactly what it sounds like)
> * Maelstrom (a powerful whirlpool in a sea or river)
> * Levada (a portuguese aqueduct)
> * Deluge (downpour of rain causing a flood)
> * Diluviant (one who pertains to a flood)
> * Gilgamesh/Bilgamesh (from the Epic of Gilgamesh, an ancient Sumerian
> story describing one of the oldest great flood mythologies)
> Of the above, my personal favorites are "Diluviant" and "Maelstrom".
