But mine is a mouthful, so people would tend to use the acronym (which
isn't really self-explanatory) rather than spell it out.  The other
flaw, on further reflection, is the same problem we had with CDD.
People would often forget which letter was doubled, so they'd say CCD

No, the more I ponder Debian Remix or Debian (Pure) Blend, the more
these ideas grow on me.  They're both comfortable, attractive names and
"Remix" is applied outside of Debian as well, so it has a better chance
of being understood by an outsider without explanation.  While some of
the acronyms suggested so far have a certain 'cleverness' appeal to
them, the most successful names are not necessarily the most clever.
