Very interesting tree. I guess Manchineel works, but then
the question is, how should I name the tools? I want the
tools to have a common prefix of 2 to 4 characters plus a
dash. Perhaps ‘hm-’, as in ‘hippomane mancinella’, but
that could be confusing.

Any other ideas of awesome arbitrary things, I cannot
think of anything else that is not already used?
