I'm working on flocking bots and other animal-style behaviors, for which

I'd prefer that the bot name not appear above the avatar. These things
are just going
to move around in a lifelike way, not speak. The docs for AW_LOGIN_NAME
say that
the bot name will appear above the bot if it speaks - but it seems to
appear even
if the bot doesn't speak - is there a way to supress it appearing?

This depends on if you are the world's caretaker. If so, then you will see
all avatar names over them whether they talk or not. If they do not talk,
nobody else can see the names, so it's not that big of a deal... and so far,
I don't think there's any way to 'supress' the names...

Bot names are only exposed to you if you are a world caretaker or if you
have eject rights in that world. Other people will not see the names unless
the bots speak..
