  1. Yet another

    Among programmers, yet another is an idiomatic qualifier in the name of a computer program, organisation, or event that is confessedly unoriginal. Stephen C. Johnson is credited with establishing the naming convention in the late 1970s when he named his compiler-compiler yacc, since he felt there were already numerous compiler-compilers in circulation at the time.
