Re: map.el and naming

Would it be plausible to name the library "map.el", but name the
functions "m-" instead of "map-" (i.e., abbreviate the library name)?

The library could also be named "maps.el". It's slightly unorthodox to
use the plural, but it would emphasize that it refers to maps and not
to mapping.
