I admit this whole thing has confused me, as well.  I think it was less
a situation of "choice" and more one of "organic growth."  We had moved
ahead with the merger of RHL and Fedora.us into a single project, picked
a name, and put a distribution out with that name, before anyone noticed
we had created the "hat" problem.

Remember Hanlon's razor:  "Never attribute to malice that which can be
adequately explained by stupidity."
