Hehe, right. I also thought about suggesting another german name but
most times they sound as boring as the cheap folk music they play in

Finally, I had the idea of naming it "kit", or even better: "InstallKit"
which comes pretty near to Benedikts name "InstallIt", just that it's
more focussed on assemble/construct something. What do you think?
