But is it? We will most likely be using a totally different syntax, have a
client/server model, and use none of Neven's original code. How is that
anything to do with the code base or idea's that is now nALFS? Maybe it does

the same job (takes profiles and acts upon them) but it does it completely 
different. Its like saying a car does the same job as the bus (takes you
A to B) so lets call it a carbus.
