As a highly professional piece of software I'd like to see it having a
professional image. Thus we need some branding guidelines! First place to
start is the name. The full name is clearly "GNU Backgammon", however the
abbreviation is far from consistent. Should we have a vote? Do you prefer:

A. gnubg
B. GnuBg
C. GnuBG
D. other

My own preference is for GnuBg which I think looks nicest and reads easiest.
Out loud I think I'm more likely to read GnuBg as "Ga-noo Backgammon" but
GnuBG as "Ga-noo Bee-Gee" which sounds a little silly.

In emails I'm sure most people will always type gnubg, but this seems a bit
too casual for the website and documentation.
