Yeah, I remember looking at this in boot-9 and thinking it was odd.
It wouldn't be too hard to fix -- outside of boot-9 and possibly modules.c
I don't think anything really touches it. (I know I've written code that
touches it, but I also know I wasn't really supposed to...) Just rename
it to %application or #{\ application}# or something.
