Nah, I like Evil Twin better than "overlapped". Evil Twin sounds more
ominous, and makes my job sound much more dangerous than staring at a
monitor and waiting for someone to mess up. Maybe you could even
finagle a raise out of it.

It does point out that Subversion does need a term to describe this
type of namespace overlap, but obviously we can't use Evil Twin
because the ClearCase people have that.

Any others?
