While reading your post I got an idea for future DragonFlyBSD releases.
Why not name them according to dragonfly species?
I think there should be enough till the next millenium ;-)
Hmm, am I the only one who is glad that we _don't_ have fancy codenames 
for releases?
Hm, I don't like codenames as well, despite liking the idea :)

I can easily remember a version number, while I forget names very 
quickly, because they usually have no meaning (e.g. Intel codenames :).

But if used rarely, codenames might be a nice and funny thing. For
example if the goal is some years away as for example "Python 3000" 
(hehe, is that now a codename or a version number?). Maybe there is
a dragonfly that builds clusters? :)
