For posterity to anyone who still reads this, the spork thing is mostly my fault. And it sort of caught on.

I do website and irc stuff for io.js and I had trouble describing what the project was in relation to node.js.

So I called it a spork, because "sporks are friendlier". Whatever that means. Aside from being friendly.

Proof is somewhere in the io.js irc logs back near when the project sporked.
