How should I pronounce "Xapian"?

We don't really have an "official" pronunciation, but we usually pronounce it like the English word "zap" - so "Zap-ian".

"Zay-pian" is a popular variant, and arguably closer to the origin of the name (it's a mangling of the English "sapient" or the Latin "sapiens").
