Hi,

While I agree that toydist needs a new name, Bento might not be a good  
choice.  It's already the name of a database system for Macintosh from  
Filemaker, an Apple subsidiary.  I'd be *very* surprised if the name  
Bento is not copyrighted.

Have a look at http://www.filemaker.com/products/bento/

Too bad, because the lunchbox metaphor seems like a good one.
