I've already been working on the brainstorming and name collecting part 
and have also asked for input offline from people far better than me at 
this as well.  I'll post those suggestions back to the list to spark 
discussion once I have them.  I'm also not naysaying "Trellis"--just 
pointing out that there are pros and cons for a type of name so that we 
can make sure we consider them as we pick a name.
