found the name
MERD = Merd Est Redondant et Débile or Merd Elimine la Redondance et la Débilité.
aka Merd is Extremly Redundant and Dumb or Merd Eliminates Redundancy and Dumbness.
it comes from the french word ``merde'' meaning shit :)
(in fact, it sounds nice in a few other languages: merda (italian, portugese), mierda (spanish))
another origin could be:
(thanks to Hal E. Fulton of Ruby fame)
- english OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) is POO en french,
- english poo is merde in french :)
the "e" in merd should be pronounced like the "ea" in "heard"
created merdy. It's still to be decided if it is worth keeping it :)
