Hmmmm.	It's actually kind of a shame, because Stargrunt is probably a
more appropriate name for man to man skirmish games than the squad 
game it is right now.  (8-)  

That being said, I think FMASk has a nice ring to it.  Problem is
marketing in North America (where the term 'Anorak' is not really
in wide distribution (8-)).  Actually, that raises a title
suggestion:  "Full Metal Warrior"   Or some play on the 
"Warrior" theme?  (Use 'Full Metal Gladiator' and take advantage 
of the hype that's sweeping the Oscars this year.  (8-) )
