Notice that all instances of fuck that show up are at least somewhat appropriate to the
app or library, and have little to do with the core obscene meaning of the word.
"fuck" in "brainfuck", means "to mess with",
"thefuck" is probably short for
"what the fuck" (a pretty random exclamation that one might make after

to assume that it was like libiberty: named that way because when passed to GCC
it would become "-leaner" (like libiberty becomes "-liberty"). If it
