Your suggestion set me out to playing with gpw, having it generate
6-byte names, and it spat out "swalow".

Swallow -- close enough to siphon (in one of its meanings), and with
a memorable Monty Python reference:

"What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?"
"What do you mean? An African or European swallow?"

Of course this means we can have two versions of Swallow ;-)

And it continues to feed on that snake image... what else does one
envision a python doing with its meal?

And I really like the command-line implications
# swallow PIL
