Besides do you know how many website domain names would have to be changed to reflect that change? :lol

Not to mention the more than four hundred seventy-five thousand occurrences of the name in the source that would need changing.

This is just a silly discussion that pops up like springtime weeds.

Funny, as the first term I can recall the term gimp (outside of the software) was when my then grade three kids came home with gimp that they were using to make keychains as an art project at school... No one in the school seemed to have a problem with the name...

Apparently it is also called "boondoggle"
