Did I hear on standup that is taken?  Is that the reason for  
the change?  I think I'm a bit slow -- it's not clear to me from the  
list below why the current name doesn't work.

I think it's important to keep library in the name since it is a  
collection of design patterns and design pattern libraries are a  
common design resource these days.  So if we need to change the name,  
how about "Open Design Pattern Library".
