I tend to agree, on both points. We owe a lot to GISVM, and to the
unknowing or forgetting eye the file name does resemble some random
collection of letters and numbers. Having "gis" in there helps.

FWIW "my" live-helper variant in svn currently has a host name of
"osgeo-live" but I really liked Alex's "agoterra" suggestion way back
when and have been considering hijacking it ever since :)

no, it doesn't. only the file contents contribute to the md5sum, not
the filename, ownership, or properties.
