i think that we can move on from the name change.  lots of people have
leaned towards keeping it for many many good reasons, although i can
understand those who would prefer a different name.

my take is that we *already* have 2 names, the "cute" name
(BayPIGgies), and the "official" or "professional" name (The Silicon
Valley-San Francisco Bay Area Python users group).  see the top of the
web page. (if you want it actually on the page title instead of at the
top of the content, we can do that too.)

those who like the cute name can continue to use it.  those who don't,
just use the professional name and don't even mention the cute name
anymore to anyone.
