Unfortunately I forgot to CC the list when I answered Eli's
request. Maybe that could have shortened the discussion.

I am looking for a new name... The "canonical" replacement for the
"newsticker" prefix would be "nt" which somehow sounds very
8+3-ish. "nwstckr" sounds even more so. And is incredibly ugly. One
could rename the whole newsticker thing and call it err... Emacs RSS

Probably it will be "nt".
