FWIW, as a user and non-developer, having a name like geda-gschem or 
similar is going to be very confusing for the new users that I assume 
you're trying to attract.

I'll also add, again as a user, that I made the commitment to try these 
tools (gaf and pcb, now pcb-rnd too) and to stick with it for some 
time.  But the consistent negative tone of the conversations on this 
list is quite disheartening, to the point where it's hard for me to 
envision recommending the gschem+pcb path to colleagues.
