Well, I don't know who you might be thinking of as overlooking it; I'm
certainly aware that quite a few bugs in CPython (mostly in obscure
corner cases, it has to be said) have been found and fixed as a result
I don't know if mentioning this sort of thing will earn us brownie
point with the EU (it certainly seems a /fairly/ expensive way of
getting a code review :).
It's actually a corruption of "starling". They used to be carried.
Since they weighed a full pound (hence the name), they had to be
carried by two starlings in tandem, with a line between them.
