I agree - the naming thing started as a fun game, then it got
'standardized', and now it is just one more process that has stopped to
be either fun or useful. Apart from the problems that Seth has listed,
others have pointed out that the expected connection of the release name
to the artwork is more often than not problematic.

Time to reevaluate and come up with something fresh and fun that we can
do for each release.

How do we make that happen ?
