That's a very long CNAME.  I think it would annoy everyone.

I think the confusion between "ELPA-like" and "ELPA" will only get worse
as ELLE (or whatever we call it) becomes more popular.  So I'm against
anything that includes "ELPA" in the name.  ELLE is short, memorable,
and slightly amusing, though I'm sure the joke will wear thin if we
discuss it to death.

I think we have a majority in favor of ELLE (Lars, RMS, and me).  Can we
rely on Chong Yidong and Stefan Monnier to make the final decision?
