I don't think he was responsible for the example that I gave.

All I know is that the mode-line shows -F1 on a tty, and -F2 on the rare
occasions that I use C-x 5 2 there.  I've never seen the frame-name changed
explicitly on a tty and since it is preceded by a hyphen, it would have to
start with R- for to be an ambiguity.  All the single character flags are on
the left and I can't think of a better place for it (that doesn't mean there
isn't a better one, of course).
