Given the existing silly names for Debian distros, the progression
slink -> potato -> woody -> vegemite seems like a good idea... how
about suggesting it ?!?

See Terry Pratchett, "The Last Continent" for an alternative account
of the origins of Vegemite.

(Also see "Wyrd Sisters" and "Small Gods" if you've ever wondered
where the Ogg Vorbis format got its name from)

We are now NO LONGER the Knights Who Say Linux, we are now the Knights
Who Say ECKI, ECKI, ECKI, P'TANNGGG! Zum-boing, zum Vegemite.
