I've always used the name of the package, or some obvious abbreviation.

This method seems good to me because it's quickly clear to a casual reader
that the macros are package specific; if I saw a macro named `GNU_...'
I'd wonder if there was some extra meaning to it.

 has to be us.  -- Jerry Garcia
