In the vein of "bison" is not a "yacc", how about "cloud9" (a heavenly
location in contrast to limbo, and also an oblique reference to
Plan 9). More obscure: "GNUvola" ("nuvola" is Italian for "cloud").

Or, since "limbo" is also a dance, "lambada"?

Since Inferno, Limbo, etc. are on a theme from Dante, perhaps someone with
a more literary background can suggest a parallel from Milton (from
Paradise Lost or Paradise Regained)?
