I'm curious to know if you will want to call your package "libswarm"

Didn't think about it until you mentioned it, was thinking just "swarm" but there does seem a convention to use "lib" when its a library. Looking further though we might want to consider different Swarm variations, especially considering the different GUIs and such, for example:


But then maybe this is going overkill, I think swarm-core is a good idea (i.e. the non-gui pieces) because that could make it simple for putting Swarm on cluster machines without getting X Windows and etc. pulled in.

It needs to be figured out how to handle different GUI front-ends, and how to allow them to co-exist on the same system without conflicting with each other. I guess the simplest way is to have all the GUI pieces in a separate library.
