Can't we really find something that
- doesn't have a "k"
- is not a generic name?

Generic names are bad for many reasons (including, but not only, when you look
for information about the program on any search engine).

That said, I'm not stopping the renaming (even if I dislike Selfie), I'm not
anyone here. I suspect someone else will poke again in two weeks and ask again
why it was renamed this way, though.
