Before uploading our project to PyPI, I think that we should think about what we want the project to be called. I am starting to think that "pyshtools" is too long, and that "shtools" might be better.
One problem with doing this is that there is already a submodule called shtools that contains all the routines, so this would have to be renamed for clarity, and I don't have a good alternative yet.
Also, I am not sure if we would need to change the name of the pyshtools directory (which I like as is, because it distinguishes itself from the fortran src), or only change the project name in the file.
What do you think?

Usual convention in Python is to use the same name both for the project and for the directory. I think pyshtools is good, because it is clear that there is SHTOOLS as main library and it's Python interface is pyshtools.
