In March, I held a talk in Chemnitz which previewed Slony-I among other 
things.  I mentioned in passing, "no idea where he got the name from".  
Of course, east Germans being relatively proficient in Russian, I was 
immediately corrected.  So next time someone chooses a non-obvious name 
for a project, let us know what it means beforehand. :-)
