Well, there are so many names to remember with all your great
software, that it's sometimes confusing which is which. Before I read
your websites for Sow and Rolls I couldn't tell why there are two
projects. Since they work closely together I think it'd get higher
attention if you merge them to one name.
As for me, I have to admit, I'm more interested in Sow than Rolls.
But in either case, I'd probably use sow to create rolls packages +
alternatives. Calling it Rolls the first thing I'd think about is
creating rolls packages plus some alternatives, since it can. With Sow
+Rolls, I'd maybe think about creating all kind of packages plus
rolls as alternative, b/c it's a cool new package system.
I know this is just about naming, but I'm just for "Rolls" for both.

Sounds great! Can't wait for Sow (Rolls).
