Hmmm... I'm leery of three character identifiers due to the fact 
that third party packages typically use those, but formatted as 
"SBo" may very well be enough to set us apart.  That concern 
aside, I do like it, as it's "catchy" enough to create the 
possibility that we'll later be known by "SBo"  :)

I'm guessing that many users will change this anyway; I 
personally make anything built on my system use "rlw" - but 
that's simply to make maintenance easier; a simple grep for "rlw" 
in /var/log/packages lets me see what additional applications I 
have installed.
