It's doable, we may take the occasion to "revamp" the tor2web website
(still a bit outdated) with such a new name along the "project github".

The software is pretty stable and have many deployments, not only for
general public onion access but also for simple-to-be-deployed
https-to-onion proxy for single websites.

We shall see the time and effort to handle the rebranding, we need to
check if/how it's possible to manage the change of package name too, or
if only work in terms of "public presence and project name".

Tor2web is a long standing project that we keep alive, slowly but
actively developed, and it's a real challenge for anyone that wanted to
play with it, as it face the reality of the frictions between the
"internet world" and the "onion land" (and i got personally blacklisted
as "person non grata" by multiple hosting company due to that) ;-)
