Don't get me wrong, but the only lengthy mail I have read has been 
yours. The easiest way to not waste time in a discussion is simply not 
to take part in it: if enough developers don't take part in it, the 
topic won't continue. A simple "we have already discussed it, we prefer 
to keep the names" would have sufficed. I agree with Noel that this vote 
really looks like "let's decide once and for all what we want the 
bikeshed color to be".

On the other hand, I'm a bit concerned about how this thread, which 
contained only about some random thoughts and suggestions, has quickly 
degenerated. The best thing is to do in these cases is *not* to escalate 
things, like others on this thread have done. I'll now crawl back to my 
observation point, hoping that nobody will reply to this mail but just 
think about it.
