Popickian?  I hope all the ads-l lexicographers are on their toes and ready to record this item if it's used another few times. And btw, make that "Popikian" (no -c- before the -k-).

 (I don't mean to get Popickian about this, I was just pointing out that this is still
unfinished historical-lexicographical business.)
