So we have:
* Umoya (Zulu for air)
* Bukisa (which I'm still a little lost on it's meaning) :)
I'm trying to have the name/tagline be a nod to the good work of the
ATM, I'm leaning toward Breath and Umoya. Keep in mind, its just an
iconset name. What it looks like is most important. :D
I'll be picking *something* within the next 8hrs or so.
