When Werewolf came out the name was used prominently in almost every review I read.

Right, so some of the time people call it "Fedora X" and some of the time people call it "Sillyname" (or maybe "Fedora Sillyname"). And that's a good thing for helping people (especially new users) to understand what we're about, which releases are which and in what order they come?

just look at Ubuntu, officially they are numbered releases but everyone uses the names.

Yes, and put off potential new users like me who find the whole thing very cliquey and unfriendly because they're interested in doing something useful with their computer, not trying to remember that Potato is newer than Carrot, but older than Turnip. Or work out that an upgrade from Radish to Cucumber might be possible but awkward due to the 3-release gap, whilst Parsnip is now unsupported, Ginger is a beta release and Onion is actually a vegetable, not an operating system.

I'd rather eat the entire CD respin, disc by disc.
