Poll: Name for new firmware project

I'm planning on opening up the code (GPL) for building new 5D firmwares sometime soon and am seeking a good name for the project. It is similar to chdk, but does not use their code and has different goals: the focus is on just the 5D Mark 2 and specifically cinema-related enhancements.

Some thoughts on the theme:

* Film (or Cinematography) Hacker Dev Kit (FHDK)
* 5D Dev Kit
* 5D Film
* 5D Mark Free
* Film Liberty
* Magic lantern (an early type of film projection)
* Cinematographe Lumiere (inventors of the modern perf film)
* Zoetrope (an early "motion picture" format)

If there are trademark issues with the 5D, perhaps we can substitute 5Z, where Z is for Zoetrope.

What other ideas do you all have?

In general I like the Zoetrope naming (although it's already taken by Coppola), but the one I think fit the best for this project is 5D Mark Free (since it suggests that it's a new version, Mark III, but it's also free).

"Mark Free" is the most clever (so far), but depending on the (supposed) firmware update, I'm rooting for "Unleashed." FREEEEEDOOOMMMMMM

I personally like "Magic Lantern" because it has somewhat of a double meaning. It would be our guiding light through the darkness of the crippled Canon firmware. My second choice though would definitely be "Mark Free".

I like the 5D Mark Free, except I'd change it to Free 5D-2
