No problem, I was trying to find something better than "(regrettable
name, we know) from the original copy, and explain that it is only
temporary.  As far as sounding to "saintly", I don't mind dropping it,
but they have done a lot to help evolt.org and are trying to get a fund
raising project going to help more.  Since this could produce a lot of
funding I think we need to avoid to much negativity about the name.  We
don't want to turn people away unnecessarily.

Funding is something we need badly and could have had this thing
generating funds several weeks ago.  Let's get a decent announcement,
let people know the domain will be changing along with enhancements.
