Some of the ones suggested in jest:

- Mark-coded (I'll go into seclusion and write them all!)
- Matt's choice (no community input — Matt picks his favorites based
on their use of puns and big blue headers)
- Classy (
- Finger-licking Good (rated on a 1-5 BBQ-stained fingers scale)

Some of these are reasonable contenders. We didn't want to overwhelm
the poll with too many options!

One of our concerns is to minimize the "what it says about all the
other plugins" effect. We don't want everyone else to feel like
they're being deprecated or downplayed. Imagine what people will call
the plugins that aren't canonical, based on the names you consider.
