As I just replied to David Lees -- I didn't signal adequately that I
was not soliciting names for the project at this juncture, but was
merely attempting some levity. :-) I *should* have realized from the
recent "naming threads" what might happen... -- my bad! :-p
However, I *like* Daleth -- you're right, it is a bit Dr Who-ish.
Thanks! Non-English words will be a fruitful pool to fish for names in
-- when the time comes.
