I think "Jeffrey" would be cool. Like in the song "A song for Jeffrey" - Jethro Tull

Given the hubbub about "the future of Arch Linux," I would prefer "Perestroika."

Re: Name for new 0.7 release: ORCA

maybe Nebula too... Sirius is a good name but it makes me think of the Satellite Radio every time. Maybe we could change the logo to Golden Arches and call the next release "McWidget"?

I propose "neutron star", because it's small but "dense"
Otherwise "bash" (meaning a strong hit, not the shell).

Re: Name for new 0.7 release: ORCA

How about following a set naming scheme like Debian does - fx. naming each release after an important figure in Open Source as a tribute..

0.7 could then be the "Linus" release smile
0.8 could be "Robert M. Love", and so on.
