Disclaimer: I'm not using PyWhip at the moment, since my next Python 
class won't start until fall.

That said, as I told Andy over the weekend, when I hear "PyWhip" I can't 
help but think of

a) a dessert topping (fluffy and loaded with OOP goodness, to be sure)


b) an S&M site, no doubt related to the famously misleading porn site 
that unfortunately features "python" in its URL.

I freely admit this may say more about me than anything else, but those 
are my involuntary associations...

I would also add that the name itself would not keep me personally from 
using the site, but I might not mention it by name in materials sent 
home to parents.

This time for sure!
