Well, do we really want to sound too attractive?  Its effectively beta 
quality software.  People need to know that up front (before wasting 
time downloading it).  The people that don't mind beta test software 
will get it.  If we attract more than that, we run the risk of others 
thinking that we suck because we're rough around the edges and then they 
un-install it and never look back, spouting out curses directed our way 
all the while.  The Mozilla guys get around this by removing all 
branding from the software until its a final release.  We don't really 
want to do that, I don't think...

If we really want to go the naming route, I'd spend more time figuring 
out cool names for the final releases.
