	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.
