in reply to How do you name the possibilities?

You might have some luck with defining a standard product and then only specifying the deviations from it. For example you could order a BigMac ( BigMac ), or a BigMac with no cheese ( BigMac-Nc ).

Hopefully this would lead to the common orders being simple ( BigMac ) whilst the complicated orders get longer ( BigMac-NcEgPbNt: BigMac, no cheese, extra gerkins, plain bun, not toasted ). As the odd orders are rare it does not matter that they are longer.

Feel free to adapt to your problem domain.

[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
Discipulus seems a part of the globe very unfrindly with Kawasaki riders..
[thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
[perldigious]: As long as you are a good "boy scout" stevieb, more power to you... but I like my Jeep, and don't like the idea of rolling it or crashing it in to anything. :-)
[thezip]: Me, not as much.
[perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
[stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
