What is this "xotl" stuff before "gravity"?
===========================================
'xotl' is both a namespace for many of the packages done by `Merchise
Autrement`_, and a word in Nahualt_. It seams to have
`different<https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/xotl>`_ `meanings
<https://nahuatl.uoregon.edu/content/xotl>`_; although we selected it because
we found it meant 'foundation' or 'base'. According to most sources I can
find now, it is pronounced like 'chotl'; however, it seems that 'x' in Nahualt
was also pronounced like an 'h' (I've told that's why México is pronounced
like 'Mehico' in most Spanish speaking countries), so we pronounce 'xolt' like
'hotl' (quite hot, isn't it?)

.. [#spanish-neutral-gender] Spanish does have a neutral gender, but as far as
I know, is always attached to pronouns like 'eso' or 'aquello'; nouns are
always either feminine or masculine.
