OK - so now we are getting to some _real_ bikeshedding ;-)

While nobody will be asking "what does colloquial English label for the
dumping place do in the code", the concern with "css" is real, mainly
around filters.

Regarding git cloning - my hope is that in the long run we will be able
to transit even the usage of 'com.sun.star' in the Java api and rdb and
Python and everywhere some way - and there _some_ prefix fits.  I am
happy to go ahead with "lo", "uno", "bla", "ugh", or whatever that is
not widely confused with another technology - ie. no "css", "com",

Can we end up with something constructive here?

Thank you,
