We've had some more discussions about the name, and the google doc has
been updated with a bunch of alternatives.

However, at the end the name "Flatpack", or "Flatpak" seems to have
come up on top for many people.

Jimmac even made a logo:

There is some disagreement on the alternative spelling though.
"Flatpak" is shorter, more unique and easier to google, whereas
"Flatpack" is more natural to spell and spells like it sounds.

Which one do you all prefer of these two?
