Cute, if misaligned, analogy.

I think what's being suggested isn't naming the bike for the wrench, but
labeling a particular bolt on the bike with the particular size of wrench
needed to adjust it. This is especially handy since the bike also uses
bolts of different sizes (Berkeley DB, FSFS, flat files...).
