I have no objection to a rename, but agree with Ralph that this seems like
the sort of thing that should be handled by asking Nathan first (which
Jeff may have done, who knows). Naming arguments are always painful and
we've largely avoided them. I'd hate to start with a situation where we
don't talk to the original author of the code first.
