Welcoming Pipp

[ #36838 ]

The PHP on Parrot implementation used to be called Plumhead, after the Plum-Headed Parakeet. As this name is somewhat goofy, a new name was sought. Some more or less sane variants were discussed, http://www.perlfoundation.org/parrot/index.cgi?plumhead_renaming.

And the winner is Pipp.

Thanks to Christoph Otto for getting this rolling.
