FWIW, i liked MOPP aka the ministry quite a bit. I recommend
taking the discussion to just the core contributors (e.g. on IRC)
and see if you get somewhere.

I don't mind getting occasionally confused people and pointing
them to a great project.
Btw, we had some hundred postings on c.l.py before we settled
on the name PyPy. It's a good way to spread the word, though :-)
Another note: it appears that pronouncing pypy/pypi means
"tits" in japanese ... (which we only discovered after the
fact, i swear, it might have changed my opinion).
