   It provides LSP client services to several Emacs features, yes.
   Having a client without this glue would be much less useful, because
   it would mean we'd need to develop that ourselves.

Right, my point was mearly that eglot isn't _just_ a client -- so
whatever name is derived from that wouldn't be a good fit, since it
does much more as well.
