Before being integrated in the main code, the w32 code for Emacs was called
NTEmacs, and nowadays it's still common to hear people refer to a w32 of
Emacs as NTEmacs.  Similarly a Carbon build of Emacs is often referred to as
Carbon Emacs.  So it seems quite OK to name the project Emacs.app and this
name will probably stick even after it gets included in the
main distribution.
