As one of the residents around here who keeps Kosher, I don't find it
offensive in that regard.  I do, however, consider it an odd choice for a
name, since refering to some software as a Pig is never intended to be a
good thing.  :-)  I certainly don't want anyone calling my work produce a
pig!  :-)

Just pointing it out, not basing a vote on the name.  :-)
