I like the mathematical symbol naming scheme and even though technically
 (as far as I know) Zeta would be the next letter in the alphabet if one
skips epsilon I think phif is a very cool name. So +1 to that! :)

I also concur with Romel Sandoval's idea that the gNewSense naming
scheme should be:
["spelled out" greek letter][upstream letter]
so +1 to that too! :)

However, we should pick suitable greek letters in any order we like, so
that the distribution name sounds good with the upstream letter (like
Matthew just did).

What would the Ubuntu "greedy goat" based version be? psig (psyche),
rhog (rogue), pig (peek or pike - depends on where you come from), chig
(chick), gammag (perhaps read as gammage (as in flamage), gammagee or
even gamgee). I love making up names. :)
