I'm very happy to here you say so, I certainly don't want to affect
your progress through the incubator, in many ways I've unfairly sigled
you out as an example of a prectice I feel strongly about.

Unfortunately I will be away, offline, for the next four days, but if
it is still relevant I will be happy to take up your kind offer and
put in time helping to find an acceptable, strike that, a good name.
