I had an idea about naming, and I figure I'd run it up the flag pole, to see if anyone salutes it:

It will be very easy to make different power versions of the controller. Some people with a motor cycle may only want a 200 amp version. The pack voltage input is flexible from 0v to 144v, so that doesn't matter. Others may want a 400 amp, 500, up to maybe 1000. In principal, there's VERY LITTLE DIFFERENCE ON THE INSIDE. Couldn't it be the Open Revolt motor controller project, and the various variations on the directions/kit/whatever could have a name?

Maybe the 144v 400amp model could be Little Miss Mosfet?
144v 500amp could be Cougar, etc...
