This was the only reason for the rename. (It is also the reason the
rename was done after the implementation, and very fast, because we
had to decide on a name before Monty's keynote.)

So the main issue is to choose a name that will avoid confusion with
the feature Mikael R has implemented. I think anything that achieves
this can still be considered.

In any case, it is not the intent to change anything in the code,
except I guess we need to syncronize the name of the feature with the
user visible variable names.
