What is the meaning of "DragonLace"?

DragonLace is a portmanteau, a new word formed from "Dragon" and the proper name "Ada Lovelace". The Dragon refers to the long-term goal of melding the GNAT front-end with the LLVM backend, and the Ada language is the namesake of the Countess of Lovelace, of course.

It also has a catchy ring to it, perfect for a website. The only significant previous use of the term are misspellings of DragonLance, so it's good to have a unique name.
