The failure to post the latest update has put me in an interesting situation. Had it been posted I'd have said 'Oh, to Hell with it, I've called Cannon+Camel Kamikaze, and that's an end to it.' As it is I'm tempted to suggest putting the update on hold while I try thinking of yet another renaming. You see, prompted to read All the King's Men to see if I've neglected anything I see the definition of a Kamikaze piece there and it's a better fit. This has been one of the most troublesome pieces to name so far, so if anyone has any ideas for a better name - or for that matter thinks I should stick with what I've got - I'll welcome them. It should start with C or K, have A as its first vowel, and not be in this list. Ideally it should go well with the other -hopper renamings: Marksman, Careerist, and Campaigner.
