Agreed on all points.  Josh Boyer did a good job compiling all the
candidate names, but once we piled in the time to get all the Board
votes in, suddenly we were lagging by another couple of weeks, partially
because of the overlap with FUDCon.  We can definitely tighten that time
up next cycle to give us a better shot at unifying the theme with the
name.

Some of the designs I've seen thus far are, or have the potential to be,
truly stunning, so I hope people will not abandon them just because they
don't fit the release name!
