That is one thing that I don't so much like about "eggcrate". It is long
and a left-hand finger-twister on the keyboard.

Another idea: snakeden (or just "den"?)

I love the little animated GIF on this page with the snake peeking out
of its hole. :)

It is easier to type that "eggcrate" and isn't particular to the egg
package format (which someone brought up might be confusing). Like
"eggcrate" it connotes containment.

There is no "den" command on the PATH on a few computers that I checked
(linux, windows, hpux, aix, solaris). A quick google search didn't turn
up any conflicts with other projects that I could see.

Just an idea. I don't care strongly.
