I decided to devise a one-to-one conversion table for version digits.
This will save me the trouble of guessing which version this "Greased
HedgeHog" nomenclature is referring to.

Informal names will be made up of an adjective, a small animal,
A verb which is being performed by the small animal, and a substance
or object being operated on by the verb. The specific words are
determined my the digit of the version number.

Kernel 1.1.18 was a Greased GroundHog selling Mountain Dew.
Kernel 1.3.95 is a Greased HedgeHog on Steroids.
Kernel 2.0.(0)0 will be a TurboCharged Chicken doing LSD.

If you'd like, I could write a PERL script which will scan the Makefile
of your current kernel source code and tell you the proper non-numeric
name for that kernel.

I think perl is an overkill here and maybe not (yet) available at boot
time. I've hacked a boune shell script to do this. It should even work
at boot time with /usr not yet mounted.

Maybe Linus want to change some of these names...?
