Yes, I know, this is one reason why I agree to change the name, my only
concern is about compatibility.

Anyway, I have already added this on my TODO list.

Isn't it also a coffee in the USA? I thought the story about coffee was
a joke, but then I saw this on an episode of The Simpson (IIRC), and was
translated as Caffè (coffe) :)

Classpath could have been called coffe, arabica or moka... we are lucky
that no one came out with this! :) (just joking...)
