If you wanted to be that for-profit joker I mentioned, I offer this
name and slogan

23andWe:  Don't do it alone.

Between now and that EZ button service offered directly from 23andMe,
you have plenty of proles who would rather spend another $99 to have
you do the modest digging.  My guess is that few cases would really
require more than that.

(ok, so they might not like the riff on their name)
