[Baypiggies] Voting for a new name

Let's vote on if we want a new name or not.  If so, we can then nominate 
names, etc.  For what it's worth, I like BayPython, although there are 
probably better names.

Thanks Chad!

I'm sorry that some people feel so strongly against voting about this.
Taking a vote is such a quick and simple thing compared to having a
discussion.  It's the thing to do when the discussion doesn't find a
consensus.  What's the harm?

Myself, I don't think any other issue is nearly as important.

If you accept a name for yourself, then you become that.  It's why it
is so important to say to your daughter, "You did a bad thing" rather
than "You are a bad girl".  And you should never call yourself
"stupid", or a "pig".

It's why I've always considered this group to be 'they' and not 'we'.

Such a name certainly must support the culture of confusion and

How about "Python by the Bay"?
