Why is Biskit called Biskit?

Biskit was orginally developed at the Pasteur institute in the group of Michael Nilges. The official name of this group is "Unité de Bio-Informatique Structural" which is usually abbreviated to BIS. You know how French always have to turn around every decent abbreviation (DNA becomes ADN, UNO is ONU etc). This was fortunate in our case -- SbiKit would have looked rather ugly, wouldn't it?
