\pickup has a reasonable ring to it, fitting it in a reasonable subset
of applications for \partial .  The problem I have is figuring out its
role, though.

With \times/\tuplet we clearly phased out \times for \tuplet
consistently in the documentation.  I am not really on-board with the
same regarding \partial/\pickup : the overlap in semantics is different
in character.
