There's been some demand to rename PyBOMBS, and now that we're
re-releasing it, this is a good time to think about it. Complaints about
the name include:

- It may or may not be true that people have been detained by TSA for
working on PyBOMBS at the airport[1]
- The name suggests a Python-related packages (like Pylint, PyPI...)
rather than a GNU Radio-related tool
- People can't agree on a capitalization
- No one can remember what the acronym stands for

Sure, this is not a critical thing, but now's a good chance to bring it
up and also, this is not a joke :)

Here's how we're going to do this:

- Please suggest new names in this thread.
- I will choose from those names based on 'can I live with this name',
100% subjectively.
- New names will be put up for a vote. This will include an option to
keep the old name.
- Finally, the result of the vote will be used as a strong suggestion on
what the new name will be.

There already have been some suggestions:

- gromit -- the GNU Radio out-of-tree module installation tool
- the groot
- grpm -- the GNU Radio package manager

OK guys, bring up the ideas!
