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).
