Although gothic stuff can be quite cool (with the exception of
music and clothes) - well, what about a gargoyle? - there
helpers with a more positive carisma:
Fairy, elf (got it?), genie (no, not Barbara Eden).

Hmm, is there such a big pressure in the US? I absolutely didn't
consider this or PC as a reason. I thought the reason was that
the daemon isn't *Net*BSD-specific enough, a little aged and the
"problem" that it's not owned by NetBSD but McKusick.

Got it (some time ago). But who knows that his(its?) name is Beastie?
So although pretty nice, it won't work without some knowledge of BSD.
