I'd like to stress that the renaming should really be done
for the sake of consistent and easy to understand wording.

Ideally we should end up with:

Module names:
openvas-scanner, opernvas-manager, openvas-administrator,
openvas-client and openvas-libraries.

Daemon names: openvassd, openvasmd, openvasad

Protocol names: OSP (OpenVAS Scanner Protocol,
a yet to be designed protocol that is in line with
the design of OMP), OMP (OpenVAS Manager Protocol)
and OAP (OpenVAS Administrator Protocol).

Please let us know if you agree, don't agree with this
or like to add thoughts.
