A cheeky name for a Continuous Integration tool

How To Use CIA For Continuous Integration: "CIA runs on the server where your Subversion repository lives. It watches for commits, checks out the most recent tree of the related project, and runs all the unit & functional tests. If there are failures, they are logged to the database, as well as emailed to a pre-configured address."

It seems like many of the CI tools have interesting names- Cruise Control, Damage Control, now CIA. Beyond the names though, anyone doing team development needs to be doing this.
