This term may be misunderstood in places like Australia where they
have this definition of "rooted":

   Root (verb and noun) : synonym for f*ck in nearly all its senses:
   "I feel rooted"; "this washing machine is rooted"; "(s)he's a good
   root". A very useful word in fairly polite company.


On the other hand, this mailing list is "polite company", so maybe it
works :)
