I suspect this is something related to GroebnerBasis, more exactly to  
the "choice of strategy" in the Buchberger algorithm. I have seen  
phrases like "sugar cube' and "sugar flavour" in this context. I  
might be completely wrong, but if I am right than Daniel Lichtblau  
can explain  this (as he would  then surely be the person who put  
SugarCube into the System context).
But then I may be totally off the mark.
