I'm against this kind of renaming.  We'll probably be changing the
names in GLISS, so let's not annoy users by changing the syntax
now and then changing it again in 6-12 months.

Besides, I can't make any release at the moment, and we've already
had a syntax change for 2.15.17, so trying to make this change
right now will put us squarely back where we were 2 weeks ago,
when David and Mike wasted hours and days playing with git and
convert-ly and stuff.

If two of our best developers can't handle a second convert-ly
change in the same release cycle, then I think it would be
absolute cruelty to ask a new contributor to attempt the same.
