Which is the crux of the matter really: whatever you're going to pick

sounds good to a small set of developers. That's how the original 
master/slave wording was decided on after all.
That's an interesting point. I wonder what the acceptance criteria for a
new word are.
Has someone come up with a metric already?
How would a random string perform with such a metric? Like, say, the
SHA256 hash of the module's name. Or the first few bytes thereof.
