I figured the iwojima conotations would be the offensive part... I can 
understand that a bit...  only a bit, might you.  I dont get the problem 
with daemon at all.

I respectfully submit that instead of spending time to come up with 
requirements that toss out a significant amount of brand history to 
satisfy people's fragile constitutions', the netbsd team spend that time 
facilitating the process of getting 2.0(1.7?) out the door.

Barring that, I suggest that our new mascot be an *invisible* daemon, so 
we won't offend too many blithering religious idiots.
