liblognorm or libeventnorm?

Names are always important. While thinking about liblognorm's desing, it occured to me that the name may be "too limited". In fact, the library will make havy use of CEE, the common event expression standard. In CEE, the term "log" was deliberately avoided in spite of the broader term "event". And thinking about this, my library is much more about normalizing all type of event representations than it is about normalizing "just" logs. So libeventnorm would probably be a better name. So for now, I think I will use the new name.

Any feedback in this issue is appreciated. I am also open to new name suggestions. But I think I will populate a public git early next week, so we should have fixed a name by that then ;)
