Sorry; I was at SC10 last week and my INBOX fell into disrepair. Brice is apparently much better at me on keeping up with email when at such things. :-)

Hmm, yes, this is a good topic. I think we had this discussion a while ago -- using "p" is a good way to indicate "physical". But IIRC, we didn't like "l" (for "logical") because it looks too much like 1 (one).

I think we're open to having some kind of indication to denote "logical" instead of "physical" -- any suggestions? Perhaps P and L (vs. p and l)?
