The cheetah is closely associated with the free pascal and lazarus projects (extremely laudable) but perhaps we shouldn't give grounds for confusion .....

I chose gazelle for a similar reason - its speed.

And turtles are amazingly fast.

If you're looking for fast, how about "peregrine" for the peregrine falcon?

That was a name I sort of had in mind.

And since some of the names now being proposed don't even include the word "installer", maybe call it "warren" or "woodford".
