I prefer the term "Appropriate Programming Practices." Many (most?
all?) of so-called good programming practices are in fact only
appropriate in some situations and are completely inappropriate in
others. But that is just a quibble over terminology.

I am looking for one word or a couple of short words to fit on the
navigation bar. Maybe just "More". That way the page pointed to can
contain links to articles about programming practices, Boost
policies, an "interesting links" pages, poems, jokes, and anything
else we decide is worthwhile.
