incantation: n. Any particularly arbitrary or obscure command that
   one must mutter at a system to attain a desired result.  Not used
   of passwords or other explicit security features.  Especially used
   of tricks that are so poorly documented that they must be learned
   from a wizard.  "This compiler normally locates initialized
   data in the data segment, but if you mutter the right
   incantation they will be forced into text space."
