Its never too late to correct something, *if* its not right, surely?
You have a point. But I don't think this is at this point an issue of
one being "right" and the other being "not right" at the moment. In
this case, I think it is a matter of stylistics. Both names are
adequate and adequately descriptive, and both names have some slight
Hmm, put another way: Ouch, isn't this sounding a tad like the sort of
reaction we did not like when it came out of the SL camp?
If you make a case that it is broken, we will fix it :-) Right now,
this is a matter of whether we have consistant style and type a few
extra characters or whether we shorten the name a bit and change the
style of the rest of the db as we rewrite it. I think it is too late
to revisit this sort of decision unless a case can be made that it is
materially wrong. Otherwise, we can stop coding while we debate in
minute detail the arbitrary decisions made in the coding standards.
