When I first started using monotone, I felt the name
was too long.  But I have been aliasing it to "mt" (I
don't use the default mt command on my laptop) but I
will use "mtn" going forward.

If the name can be changed, that would be nice.  But I
would rather see more effort place on storing multiple
projects in one database.  I like how SVN has one
database (though you can have multiple databases) for
multiple projects.

If we can find a one database solution, ~/monotonerc
(.mtnrc) can point to the "default" database.  The
--db option can still be used to override the default.

We can also use a ~/.monotone (.mtn) directory to
store info about the databases being used.  That way,
we don't have to worry about where the user is
relative to checked-out directory.  SVN and other VCs
have solved such problems, so we certainly can.

A better solution, would be to store information about
the database being used in each subdirectory upon
checkout or when a directory/directory-tree is added. 
That way, a person is free to blow away a directory
they were playing in without having to worry about
cleaning up the ~/.monotone (.mtn) directory.

Thanks for your time.
