Yes, basically a private joke.  The original acronym was Squeak 
Enterprise Aubergines Server Integrated Development Environment.  This 
was a play on both "Enterprise Javabeans" and "Enterprise Objects" 
(part of Apple's WebObjects, which was a major inspiration for 
Seaside).  There was also some intended kinship with the CLEE (Common 
Lisp Enterprise Eggplants) project - not sure if this is still around 
or not.

These days, though, it's just a name.  Though an appropriate one, for 
me, because I live on the coast and am happiest sitting by the sea...
