This should go ahead with right before the 1.5 changes, as discussed. Greg has put out the changes for testing several months ago, so there has been quite a while to test, and he has done quite a bit of testing himself.

Rich and Rainer are encouraging me to follow through with this name change
operation sometime in the near future. I understand people's concern that
this touches a lot of source code files and has limited benefit other than
1. What evidence do you need me to provide in order to agree to allow this
change to happen?
2. What timeframe is appropriate for this to happen?
Thanks -- Greg.
