To me, this indicates that there was a prior discussion, which is
therefore missing from the archive. In this mythical discussion, clearly
*someone* proposed the name Apache. So, yes, this is *referring* to them
missing discussion.

Remember that in these days, none of these folks had met one another,
spoken on the phone, or otherwise communicated in any fashion other than
email and usenet. Hmm. I guess I had not thought about usenet. We should
search the google usenet archives. While the discussion *may* not be
archived, the name Apache was certainly suggested by someone in an email
format at some point. I'd like to know who and when, and, more
importantly, why, to see once and for all if it really was simply "a
patchy server" or if the respect due to the Apache people was in fact
there from the beginning.
