I'm against ANTLRSavant because "Savant" is an extension of ANT and it
might be misleading in a way. I may be wrong, just expressing my

Ter, talking about unprofessional naming, the first name I wanted to
suggest was ^NTLRules! with the ^ and the ! rule annotations. -].

Yeah, I like it too...it was my first thought.

Agreed.  I like it better than ANTLR Studio due to the implicit 
association with Vizdevstudio ;)

ANTLRules is "cute" but something a bit more "academic" or 
"professional" might be better.  I'm also partial to ANTLRGuru or 
ANTLRSavant or ANTLRProdigy or RapidANTLR...still not sure.
