If you're curious about how we pick our names, take a look at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/Names.  Basically, the tradition
is that there must the relation that "oldname is an X, and newname is
also an X," and the relation can't be the same one that was used last
time.  In this case, the relation turned out to be that Cambridge and
Leonidas were both names of ships in the US Navy.
