I second the suggestion earlier for making it a simple, non-silly
name like 'PPI' for the Python Package Index. I mean, does anyone
ever feel tempted to refer to the FBI with a cute name like 'fibby'?
I'm a big Monty Python fan from way back, but I still cringe at
names that sound like they were created at the Ministry of Silly Names.
