I agree with what Peter Herman posted: the name should be immediately
accessible to anyone who might be interested in joining (so scratch
`NITFIX'). On the other hand, I agree with Rob that hyphens are asking
for trouble. Not one hour after reading his warning I made precisely
the mistake he warned about (confusing a hyphen for a an underscore),
costing me a message and time (so scratch N2-fixation). How about
`N2Fixation'?

Wait a second. There's an 8 character limit, no? Then `NITROGEN'.
