Hi there,

First off: I am not an experienced crypto coder, just an interested
crypto student.

I believe we should view this as a chance--a chance to efficiently
improve the Truecrypt codebase and especially the methods development
for this so crucial piece of a free "protective vest" for the public.

I thank everyone here for sacrificing their time and participating in
the effort!

Concerning the name, why not move away from the *crypt scheme? *crypt
would always seem like a rescue mission for Truecrypt. Instead
something new, improving on Truecrypt should be born. Hence the name
should be new, different. E.g. ciphershed. 

I'm not a native speaker though, so my suggestions might sound weird to
native speakers' ears.
