Well.. Back when i was hacking on my 2.4.4 profiles, i was trying to
figure out a name that i could release the profiles under (instead of
just the 'highos-profiles-<version>' i ended up using) and i got
thinking about my nick.. alfs.. and the Lord Of The Rings theme that
Gerard started with the lfs. (that's a different story thou ;)

So, 'halfling' kinda fit well for that, and i've been using it
since, more as a code name however... can't really think of anything
better thou *g*
