The two worst names in Spritely currently are "magenc" (immutable encrypted storage) and "crystal" (mutable encrypted storage), the former because it sounds terrible (and precedes the Spritely convention of hack-and-slash-rpg-tropes), the latter because of name collisions (but hey, using that convention means there will be some collisions by definition).

I'm vaguely thinking of renaming them to "chest" (Content Hashed and Encrypted for Storage and Transmission) and "boh" (bag of holding)?

@cwebber I actually kinda like the magenc name; it's pretty clear what it's for to anyone familiar with magnet links.
