That seems fine if/when Docket becomes obsolete - we'd move our

The open ended naming makes sense if we would envision
translating Docker recipes into "the next best thing" recipes.


P.S. Does anyone with artistic talent want to draw a cartoon blue whale

Note sure it would work, but could also try the snake-helix as a whale's
spout ...
