I'm reminded of when some Christian groups called for a boycott of
Apple because they had an OS project code-named "Darwin." Some people
will just go out of their way to look for reasons to take offense.
I'm reminded that the SATAN network scanner project used to ship a
utility with the source code that would patch it to rename it
"SANTA". I suppose someone could fork a new BSD distribution with an
angel for a logo, to mollify these sorts of people. Call it
BlessedBSD (BleSseD?) or something. ;)
