Not suitable, but a very useful answer for exposing the shortcomings in my specification. I should have said neither a name in the list or too similar one, and should also have asked for an explanation of how the name fits the piece. Carousel to closely resembleds Carouser. Sorry and thank you.
	Actually since posting my first comment I've had an idea of my own. My replacements for Acehopper (Tank+Knight) and Acmehopper (Tank+Camel) are Accountant and Actuary, as positions that might be involved in 'firing' employees or even 'gunning for' redundancies. Neither piece is in this variant but they are manifestly part of the same family of renamings. It struck me that Cashier might fit in with these two rather well, as a third position in corporate finances. In the armed forces it is used as a verb, referring to a particular severe form of dismissal. Given how long I've been thinking about this I think I'll settle for Cashier. First I'll change it in Man and Beast 08 and then I'll send the new update.
