I agree with SubtleRebel: let\'s not try so hard to find variations on the \"Sherlock\" motif.

We\'re looking for something fresh, that doesn\'t just refer back to somebody\'s trademark.

Something that clearly describes the function of the component.

Something generic, to avoid trademarks and stay out of trouble.

I know... let\'s call it The Finder!
