But amusing. That's key.

Nah, it doesn't make any difference, because all of them are meant to be
launched from either a desktop link or a menu. If you name them gwhatever
it's easy to remember the name on the rare occasions you type it, just
stick a g on the front. It's going to be especially cool when we get to
apps that were already g to begin with: ggrep, ggdb, ... the possibilities
are endless! Everything can go in /gusr/gbin/. 


Seriously, "gshutdown," etc. works better than obscure acronyms. 
gnome-whatever might be better, though, as it's less ambiguous.
