The market will determine this one - and I'm _pretty_ sure how that's
going to play out.

I'm with Tristan on BML (bee em el). There no current command or
package that collides. It's accurate, descriptive and sounds cool -
esp if you're a BMX/motorcross fan.

BeaML is cool on paper, but IMO sounds lamo - bee-mul. Rhymes with weevil.
