No offense Jesse, but I think Tim (a Red Hat employee) is probably
more qualified to describe what Cambridge is than you are.  ;)

As an aside, even if nothing else comes of RHLP, I'm happy that at
least now I *know what the internal name is*.  It's the same sort of
relief that members of the media must have felt after Prince changed
his name from that star-squiggle-thing back to just "Prince", so they
could retire this expression:

    "the artist formerly known as Prince"

Now I can retire expressions like this:

    "the next release of Red Hat Linux"
    "the release for which [NAME] is the beta"
    "the x.y or z.w release of Red Hat Linux"

Instead, I can simply say "Cambridge", or "Cambridge++".

And then look smug when my colleagues ask me what the hell a
"Cambridge" is.  ;)
