Personally I have been abbreviating the project as "swiftpm" and not "spm" when I talk about it, and have been trying to push that as the preferred abbreviation. "spm" is a few less keystrokes, but is a much more generic, less googleable name; out of context, it's impossible to know what it refers to. Once the project gets enough mindshare, like "npm" has, that might be less of an issue, but I still personally prefer the more descriptive "swiftpm". Thoughts?

Either works for me to be honest. `swiftpm` works just as well for me as `spm`
