[Bioperl-l] A new name for Bio::Moose?

Pushed by a recent suggestion by Robert, I am considering changing the  
name of the Bio::Moose project to something simpler.  I would like to  
steer away from naming this directly after the implementation and have  
something simpler namespace-wise.

I have thought of 'Alces' (the genus name for moose), which indicates  
both the Bio aspect and the implementation in an more indirect way  
(and is a bit shorter).  However, I would like to solicit suggestions  
for alternatives.  The shorter the better, and the 'winner' will  
receive a free beverage or so (on me) should we meet!
