    So for those who don't read comic books (sorry, graphic
novels) and
who haven't seen "Superman II", Zod is a randomly selected
identifier.  Satisfied?

I question whether that was the intent of those who named the
release Zod.  If indeed the name goes with the arch-enemy of
Superman and Linux is the arch-enemy of Microsoft Windows,
who does that make Bill Gates?  I find it hard to believe the
Linux packagers would grant so high an honor to the leader
of Microsoft.

I think the intent was more like:

  "Kneel before Zod!"

Gorgon minion:    "Is the Source dangerous?"
Gorgon Commander: "Only if it is on you're side."
