About the implementation, keep in mind that we decided to go with 
something vector and simple as a *default* (along with a few more, non 
release linked, additional options).

We can't go with another animal (no, not even a panda :D), that would be 
to close for the previous release.

Yeah, now is the time for it, let the ideas flow (as long as they are 
not related to the movie starring Keanu Reeves, but even that movie can 
have a positive use by setting a link: Constantine was a movie, so we 
can try to call Fedora 13 "friday", as in Friday  13" :p )

propose a steampunk approach:
