yack! and Phoon
How about yak? Multi-leveled, as in your original 'hurl', and also a take-off on 'gnu'. (Note: I do not think the meanings are related at all!)
I was going to mention something hackish, but I forget what it was. D'oh!
To _(), perchance to gettext()..
Some of the language purists over in PHP-land have just discovered to their horror that _() is in PHP (and has been since 3.0.7) as an alias for gettext(). And whether it makes the language leper-outcast-unclean is in debate. I threw in my 0.02 Euro (hey, the chocolate coins last Winter were Euros!) but I do not think it will make any difference. I have little to no patience with elegance in place of useability.. particularly when sacrificing the latter for the former, even eventually, will break existing users and applications.. So I am not popular; what else is gnu? :-)
When my new laptop arrives I am going to try running Linux as the base system with VMware to get W2K as well. If that will not work, I will reverse the order -- but I would prefer the first option. I would almost rather have a separate Windows laptop (as I do now) than to subjugate Linux under Windows..
