Hi, perhaps this important issue (quoted underneath) was buried under an 
unrelated topic.

Since I got no answer, I suppose nobody at systems@ really cares either 
way, so I just sent out an email to the affected list (SomosAzucar). If 
the idea gets no obvious rejection, I will proceed to change the name to 
*Sugar-Sur* in a couple of days.

Thanks in advance for your support.
