I am won over.  Next please.

I can't see a change like this breaking things.  So if there was
consensus about it, I'd consider this even fit for a last-minute
change.  Similarly for the names of menu entries and other
non-functional changes (keybindings are a bit different: there we have
the "I found I hated it after trying for a while to get used to it"
effect we should wait for before establishing them).
