 a) So that no one makes any assumptions about the release, apart
    from what the symlinks say
 b) Because we feel the names do reflect something (not necessarily
    technical), and this bit of whimsy pleases my muse.
 c) why not?
 d) We like Toy story, Pixar, and our fearless leader
 e) We had other pressing concerns than endlessly arguing about names
 f) just because.

 No matter how much you do, you'll never do enough.
