That's an interesting perhaps self-fulfilling prediction.

A google search shows four Bill Buehler articles as the top hits using
this term related to genealogy.  All the others google finds are from
this list, all either explicitly attributing Bill or Niven or following
up articles written by them.

But perhaps the usage will spread.
