Yeah, but some of us feel that we shouldn't be forced to add weird little
kludges to our trees, and have to undergo the pain of transition, just
because the current name happens to interact badly with your personal habits
(e.g., using constructs like `grep -r ... *' -- this is _not_ the way
everybody works [or in my experience, even many people]).

That you're pushing _so_ hard on this rather minor point, with apparently
little experience actually using arch, makes it even more grating.

No matter which name you use, it _will not make everybody happy_.  There are
minor advantages to both choices, but they are _minor_; it's more or less
arbitrary, really, and the current name is already embedded in many places,
making any transition a burden on existing users.  Given that, why should the
name be changed to make _you_ happy?
