Well the naming discussion didn't really and anywhere. There were some 
problems with Cantor, as it means "singer" in some languages (I'm not sure how 
much trouble this would cause)

As for the audience, I'm targetting at High-School students and higher. (The 
project was created to fullfilll my needs as a student of "mathematics in 
science and technology", and will probably grow with my needs)
