Ugh, Lets not start this flamewar here. I called it Firebird for the
same reason as people say Linux instead of GNU/Linux and Bob instead
of Robert: it's shorter and I'm lazy. I don't think anyone was
confused by it particularly, especially since I refer to the full
package name later on in the mail. So unless you have a better reason
then PCness, I'll use either as the mood strikes me :)
