I would never include either of those terms in my own project names
for exactly the reasons stated above.  If anyone wants to change
"Twisted" to something with less negative connotations, I'd be all for
it.  How about "Nexus?"

I know, I know, we'd lose google-juice and such.  Y'all have fun
debating twisty stuff.  :-P
