For the record, I don't care any which way about the name [1]; my
reaction would have been the same if it was called "brownfox". I was
reacting to the (to me) evident uselessness of the proposed package.

[1] Except that I think it grossly overstates the strangeness of what
is just a straightforward if rather verbose encoding of a well-known
computation model, but that is not the packager's fault.

      Please write to me and tell me what you think. I don't get much mail."
