Why "Atlas"?

I have found some tracks in the freshly fallen snow : apparently, in at least one context, ATLAS stands for Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software (http://math-atlas.sourceforge.net/ — it’s a package of software routines for doing linear algebra: “ATLAS's purpose is to provide portably optimal linear algebra software.” – I’m guessing it’s the muscle behind the layout algorithm.
