I need some help...

I've been working on a MUD server over the last couple of months, which I eventually plan to open source once I've got everything in it that I want in it. Here's a list of what's either in there or going in there:

- Client-agnostic telnet server (translates text with format tags into what a client supports)
- Support for MCCP, MCP, MXP, MSP and Pueblo extensions
- Object persistence, using a SQL database (MySQL for starters, with more possibilites later)
- Scripting language, covering most of the customizable stuff
- InterMUD 3 and XML-RPC communications
- Natural language parsing

I've actually got 2/3 of enough of it to make it usable (most of those first 4 things) done, and I'm about to take the couple of projects I've been keeping parts of it in into one project to continue working on it. I'd like to give it a final name at the same time, though, if possible, and that's where I need some suggestions. Keep in mind that this is the name for the server, not the MUD that I plan to create on top of it. That's a difference that a lot of people fail to realize :-)

No overly cheesy or corny ideas either, please... I've gotten some of those already.

Thanks for all of the name suggestions so far. The only one that really interested me, though (MUDslinger) was already taken by a Windows game, which I may have to try out :-) For a tentative name, I've decided on OPWE (Object-oriented Persistent World Engine). Hey... if I'm going to use an acronym, there really isn't one that fits the description better.
