Hey Jakub.

We now have less than two days left in which we can change the names we
refer to. My vote would be bus-usb or controller-usb. I don't really care
which :) I still think we can use the USB pitchfork logo. I haven't been
able to find anything to the contrary. It's only the "USB Certified" logo
they seem protective of (which doesn't include the pitchfork at all).

"memory"  makes sense to me and is being used by other icon themes.

If we don't reach any conclusion before about the middle of Monday (PST),
we're going to have to stick with "usb" and "memory" until 6.1 or 6.5 or
whatever. We'll make the change in that branch and then we'll use the proper
names in the 6.x betas.
