There were a few gleeful supporters of this proposal back when I posted
this message.  But the naming has stayed the same.  There was a rumor on
IRC that omega liked the current way of doing things but I couldn't find
a response from him either way.  If anyone wants to search the IRC logs
for comments go ahead.  I don't have them archived.

So, object now if you want to, otherwise I vote we change for 0.6.2
onward.  Where do we document this change so release masters do the
proper thing?
