However, seeing how long it took to get this first alpha, I think
we can postpone discussion of what to call the second one :-)

Anyway, I still don't see why the alpha should be named after a
french composer (which is what I gather 'faure' is; I've never
really heard of him),  as we already have m68k.debian.org and
powerpc.debian.org.  I propose we rename those to some vague
composer as well...
