So we've finally decided on names for the three layers?  Good! ;-)

Minimal, Basic, Full it is!

Actually I could have gone either way between Minimal/Basic/Full and
Kernel/Core/Coder/Developer/Kitchensink/whathaveyou, but at some point we need
to make a decision.  I think there was less contention over the simpler
Minimal/Basic/Full names, so they make a good choice.

Probably people will sometimes use the term "Kernel" in place of Minimal,
which is okay.
