just for future reference, if we get to super-qurtle, or squtrle, then 
it's already used to mean "someone so ugly they look like a cross 
between a squirrel and a turtle", and on a similar note, does that mean 
we'd have qipples rather than triples? and finally, we could also go for 
named-turtle, nurtle, and I won't go in to the shortname for named-triples.
