I'm basically listening to more experienced people on the matter, as I
clearly lack the background on the "terminology conventions", and thus,
I'm unable to make the best naming choices by myself.
Now, we have had participation from few people, and there doesn't seem
to be consensus. So, to make it clear, I didn't *choose* to disrespect
it, I chose to respect how I perceived the community input.
If this makes you truly disappointed, please ask more people to give
their input, and I'll gladly steer the direction of this humble ship, I
mean, patch series. :)
