Toshio, that's my main concern - don't understand me wrong, without
Dennis Ritchie, we wouldn't be here, there wouldn't be Fedora etc.,
but after S. J. passed away, KHL Lokomotiv jet crash (you should
see squares in main cities full of crying people), I became somehow
immune to this fight for who's mourning more
Please, let's to
it in more piet way.
Wp does not have to be tied to code name, in case we go with Ritchie
codename, I'd skip Verne as F16 is going to be branded in Verne
