"Math" is (a bit?) overwhelming for a team of 5- people.

In "Commons" there was the rationale of accepting only "common"
algorithms (although that was fairly fuzzy as a limitation).
Not so with that overly general name.
It's a library that will contain math, yes; all of math, certainly
So the name is just a name; it should point to project, not to a
general concept.
