As long as we're discussing names....

I kind of like "somebird", actually.  It's cute and non-confusing.  :-)

For firefox, "iceweasel" has the amusing advantage of being directly in the 
Mozilla trademark licencing policy, thanks to my use of that name really 
early in the discussion.  :-)  It might be pretty easy to "standardize" it 
among different "option 3" distributors for that reason.

Of course, it is now in use as the abstract name for a renamed version, so 
maybe it wouldn't be so good to use it for a specific version.

A name for the suite is hard.
