What's with these cute cryptic and ultimately meaningless names?

I used the term "topology guru" because I wanted something that
halfway describes what is going on. Coining a word with "torrent" 
in it is wrong because this kind of topology guru can be used with
any P2P protocol. And P4P seems more like a brand name that tries
to leverage off the term P2P.
