This is useless move but it requires testing, we have many other silly

rename them.

I propose that you, Simon, and others willing persons elaborate anything
acceptible for generic use. I admit that this is interesting project,
I'd to participate in it as well if time affords. As for now, I propose
to stop using bug tracker to discuss this. Lets' move to tech-pkg,
we annoy others :)
