Humm, where exactly did you read that? I also read the docs but came
to the opposite conclusion.

That is B.S. I really get sick of people trying to force everyone
to be "professional" at the cost of doing anything interesting.
I did not pick the name, but I think the folks that did have
a right to name it whatever they want.

What exactly are you comparing the name to? Microsoft just came
out with a product named "Hailstorm", is that
"too unprofessional" for you?
