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.
