A *librarian* manages a large collection of information, and helps
users find what they need. The package manager will do the same
thing. Unfortunately, "librarian" is too long (although I suppose we
might use "library" in some other language). It also does not have
much style. However, it leads me to a better idea...
I propose: "conan", after the animated cartoon "Conan the Librarian",
circa 1988, probably on the TV show "Reading Rainbow" . It has a
good length, is not Debian-centric or installation-centric, is easy to
remember, and has some style (IMHO).
[Note: We would need a better explanation, preferably written by someone
who has seen the cartoon more recently than I.]

 Synopsis: A small boy asks for a library card, the librarian
(Conan) challenges him with a question something like "You seek the
*card of library*?", shows him a few of the wonders it can unlock, and
finally presents him with his new card. (I found a few references on
the Web, but no really good ones.)
