Maybe it's because that the operating system itself has a userland that
is largely based on another such project with a mascot that has horns
and a pitchfork... Then again nowadays maybe the Dodo would be a better
symbol for the Darwin OS ? And there is always the "Hmmm. Interesting.
See, we was just wondering why it is you have the lord of darkness on
your chest there." *
None of this matters much to MacPorts, of course.
