"mocca" was previously a project at UKC providing Motif bindings for
occam, timestamps around 07/1996 - 10/1997.  It has been used before
this however -- citeseer has a 1992 reference hiding away:

    Benford, S., et al.,
    MOCCA An Environment for CSCW Applications.
    1992, Centre for Research in CSCW, Lancaster University.

This has more recently (1999) become:

   MOCCA - A Distributed Environment For Collaboration

I'm a bit stuck for new names though..  "woccam" ? :o).  Or maybe
something more abstract, like "M*" or "O+".  "Db" (D-flat) is tempting,
