As this is not even a proposal, sure thing we can work on a new name. I'd 
recommend that we don't spend much energy on that at first, though. We might 
go on with a codename  "dolphin" or something silly like that and in the end 
choose a decent name.

It would be better if we sum up all problems and deficiencies that we have 
faced in the past and address them in this container implementation. It 
would be a consequence, and not planned up front.

I hope so :-)

Something to be decided. I'd say that we shouldn't worry about that.

Hope so too.
