I think we decided to stick with "Cluster Labs", in part because we
don't know where "clustering" will go in the future, and we didn't want
to pigeon-hole ourself using "HA" in the name. Also, "cluster labs" has
good history and weighting in search engines.

So unless I am remembering wrong; "Cluster Labs" is the long-term
project name.
