Well, I'm not sure that would get my vote -- at least not until
someone tells me how it's supposed to be pronounced.

My original suggestion was to follow the Fedora model and (a) solicit
suggestions from the community, followed by (b) a big fun vote.
That's a little different from the model you are using.

The wiki lets you trivially rename pages, and I'd recommend having a
redirect from '9.1' in any case.  I don't see that we've got to rush
this process unduly.  Just create it as '9.1' or 'pre9.1' for now and
we'll rename it once we've got a name.
