i abstain from voting for a color but must note that you guys should
also consider that every rename will mean every app that use the function
needs to be updated, not sure if this justifies this cleanup.
Maybe it does but if i where maintaining some app i likely would be
primarely pissed about every rename that i had to deal with ...
But then its no big deal, if people want it, do the rename ...
