I have actually been pondering if it would be wise to adopt a more "boring"
name... As I see it the name is just a label, the purpose of a label is that
you can distinguish the item from other stuff and remember what it is when
you see it. The idea behind the Wasabi name in this context was that it was
so much out of place what people would pick it up :-)

Specifically on XdgSearch; the project will likely expand beyond pure
searching so it might send the wrong signals. Also I don't even know what
Xdg stands for :-)  - but the name as such might be more politically
