The proposal on the website is not publicly accessible. However, I've
made the Google Docs version publicly accessible:

I agree that a three letter acronym is quite popular and would make
things easy, but I would still support strong APA as the name since it
clearly states what the scheduler is doing.

Going by some of the existing filenames, I thought the files should be
called `schedulerapasmp.c` and similarly for others. That is also the
name I used in the proposal.
