Two names, actually: "box" and "boxer".
I'm amazed these names don't seem to be taken. I remember boxer as the
name of an editor on another platform, but it was never ported to BSD.
There's "boxes" which is a little utility for formatting comment blocks
and similar text. But no "box". Weird.
Anyway, the "box" I have in mind is a programming language for graphics.
http://boxc.sourceforge.net. Boxer is the name of its Python-based GUI.
I have the portfiles ready to submit, assuming my tinderbox run goes OK.
This query was one of my final sanity checks.
