In my understanding gitk = git + tk. It's very funny acronym, it is not?

So choosing bzrk as bzr + k is not so funny, it's just simple name cloning?
Because bzrk written in GTK, not in Tk.

While hgk fall in the same category, perhaps it should be actually named hgtk,
because it's also written in Tk.

Just some thoughts.
