Good point.  I was associating with the name "Maven", looking for a
symbol of in-depth understanding of a specialized field.

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/maven

So, what does Maven do?  It passes unique source and object code
inputs through a standardized process, guided by an expression of the
relationships among those inputs, to assemble a well-specified
configuration of runnable code.  What does that look like?
