lilo: Thanks for the certification. I still worry that there's something amiss with the system, but I'm tired of discussing it, and I think the issue is sufficiently "on the table" by now. If anyone wants to brainstorm about possible ways to improve the certification system, it would make a good article for discussion -- but I'm not going to post such an article myself. If Raph wants input, I'm sure he'll post one, and if he doesn't, that's fine too.

About a name, I agree that connotations (hopefully good ones!) will arise even from an irrelevant name. And a strange name sounds less strange as you get used to it. I'm just afraid that Murphy's Law will make me think of the perfect name after another on is entrenched instead! However, I'm getting tired of searching, so I may just run with "gangplank". It's not a perfect name, but it's distinctive at least. It does sound strange, but there are a LOT of worse names out there. Do you have any thoughts about this specific name? Do you have other suggestions?

mathieu: Happy birthday!

vab: I've got some code that's almost ready to release, but I'm still wavering about the name. Do you have any thoughts about it?
