I more wonder why the art team feels the need to use the nick-name of
the distro as a basis for the artwork.. surely they are an independent
minded bunch, and it would allows to just choose names that we like
instead of ones with meaningful artwork..

Notice I didn't see an type of X-rated stuff in Hardy Hardon, or
whatever Ubuntus last distro was called..
