Here's my opinion. Others may disagree. :)

I think "apollo" is appropriate. While I know it is just a code
name, it's very recognizable/familiar to people at this point.

I see two options here:
(1) Fix the WebKit directory to have subdirectories for each
platform. That means all of the Mac subdirectories would move under
WebKit/mac. Then you could have WebKit/apollo.
(2) Have top-level directories for each WebKit, e.g., WebKitMac,
WebKitWin, WebKitApollo, WebKitQt, etc.
My personal preference would be for (1), although note that Qt went
with (2) already. Other platforms can do (1) now without us having
to move our Mac files immediately, so that doesn't hold anything up.
I'd be curious to hear more opinions on this. I'm not a big fan of
lots of top-level directories in a project, so I like (1) a lot
better than (2).

Yeah, and additional components/platforms can be added to Bugzilla to

I'd stick with Apollo.
