I've reverted 99a0949. It's not necessarily a bad change to make but something that's so invasive as that absolutely requires some discussion before hand. Avoiding "bike-shedding" is not a valid argument for avoiding the list.

For instance, I find the naming to be truly awful and would have liked some discussion on a more reasonable naming convention.

I have a very large set of patches in my queue (over 200) that I'm testing and trying to commit. A lot of other people do. If we're going to make a change like this, it's very important to coordinate with people so that they can flush their queues and avoid massive merge head-ache.

After talking to malc, I have to take a fair bit of the blame here. I made a comment in another thread that I thought that this sort of change was a good idea. While I do think it's a good idea, I could have been more clear that it was a change that needed some more planning and discussion.
