I'm not really sure I follow you here. My intention was to suggest that
most people taking offence could likely live with description similar to
the one of libacme-brainfck-perl, or at least wouldn't really be harmed
by two package descriptions of that type over one.

I'm not really interested in the question whether the naming is
incredibly witty humour or merely a sign of imaturity or whatever.
