jezz, this is nutso. the term smokers that schwern chose refers to
smoking code as in testing it to see if it blows up in a blaze of flame
and smoke. in the hardware world powering up a box or power supply for
the first time is known as a smoke test (you don't want to see any smoke
then). the name has nothing to do with tobacco or human smoking. so drop
this thread. smokers is a fine name choice for a severe testbed system.

does everyone get it? smoke is an established term in the testing world.
