I'm inclined towards being longer more informative in names, so
osgAudio rather than osgAL, osgAnimation rather than osgAnimtk etc.
osgGPP is rather cryptic.  As OpenCL is becoming the standard then
perhaps it's label  of "Open Computing Language" might be a guide.
With this in mind - osgCompute?  osgComputation?

Thoughts for the community??

Thanks will be doing another osg-submissions review right after having
a tea break!
