it's actually named after a guy called Mike Schwartz.
At 6A we had Gearman which was an "unreliable" job system ("unreliable"
in the same sense as UDP) - Gearman being an anagram for Manager.
Then we needed a reliable job manager and Mike was the most reliable
It also gave the opportunity to write
use TheSchwartz; # I see your schwartz is a big as mine
Another bit of trivia: MogileFS is an anagram of "OMG Files!".
