When SBCL forked CMUCL they changed the command sbcl.
When EGCS forked GCC they changed the command to egcs.
When ....

There is only one axiom command on the path.

Oh, hell, let me bring it down to a level you MIGHT understand....

As I'd say to a 5 year old...
  Yes, we have another dog but it needs a different name than the first one.
  Because when I call the name we need to know which dog we want.

  Got it?

If the machine understands it and you don't then the only other
possible explanation is that you've decided to not only walk off
with all of my work, you plan to step on the very command that
starts it, deliberately confusing the user.

Rather unprofessional, don't you think?
