[development] About Geolocation module?

As Robert mentioned, we encourage you to work with other developers
doing similar things. There is no "oversite" committee on module naming.
You can use underscores in the name, but not dashes. But I'm fairly
certain that anything like geo_location, location_geo, geolocation2,
etc, will be very poorly received (and I speak from personal experience
here). I strongly suggest you either work with other mapping folks, or
you come up with a completely new name. Your module seems user or ip
based, so you might try that in the name. I don't think that this isn't
the place to name the module, so I'm not even going to venture a suggestion.
