AGL was brought up at the last irc meeting, it was glossed over as being easily confused with "AllegroGL".

But isn't AllegroGL about to seize existing as a separate project? It will be part of a potential 4.4 release and completely merged in for 5.x, which will introduce the new, prefixed API, right? Users of 5.x aren't likely to know or care about the old AllegroGL library, are they?

not much liking as they had 3 instead of 2 letters.

I don't like all_ for the same reason, but what's wrong with three letter names in general? Less typing is good but three letters is hardly excessive.

maybe, whatever we choose, we
should add a link to the logs of that IRC discussion as proof it wasn't
decided upon lightly

I'd read them. :)
