    - I was fine with iio
    - udio, for userspace-driven IO (my favorite should iio not make it)
    - idd, since it's called "Industrial device driver"
    (don't go about calling it iddqd)

    more artistic ones:
    - iofu, for IO From Userspace, or, on 2nd thought, simply IO-fu (as in Kung-fu)
    - something else that's not related at all? /methinks of squid,
    which, from the name, does not suggest it would be a web proxy.
