Bikeshed is an appropriate name, in the unix tradition of mildly amusing/punny names.

Which tradition would that be?

Out of the few hundred or so Unix [0] and GNU [1] commands listed on Wikipedia, the only vaguely amusing/punning names I can find are tac ("cat" backwards) and pinky (a lightweight "finger").

"UNIX", "head", "tail", "kill", "nice", "finger", "bash", "less" are slightly humorous.
