Well its the last moon (with an intelligible name anyway) as you
depart from Jupiter. For the next release series we will use moons
from a different planet. Also kore is punny in that 1.0 presents a
core, stable api that will be with us through the 1.x release series.

Yup - hence the lack of a splash screen piccie of it....

Lastly its probably better being a small moon with a strong sense of
self identity than a big moon that is overly influenced by your
neighbouring planet. So there is no need to use MacDonalds 'bigger is
better' type assesment when if comes to moon quality...ok I'm waffling
now :-)
