I'm a fan of bb and if it causes a serious naming conflict, bbt as mentioned

One of the things that really impressed me with mercurial was it's command
name hg. Two letters, and both very close to the home row, yet at the same
time related to the project name. I think a good criteria would be (in no
particular order):

   - No major conflicts with other tools.
   - Quick to type (homerow+1, short+1)
   - Good relation to the project name.
   - A name that isn't offensive to reflect the quality and professionalism
   of our community here.
