Take for example the debate over what to name the 'Trash'. We

'Trash' sound
foreign to many English speakers, so we sought an alternative.

I don't doubt this, and I fully support your efforts... but just out
of interest, what do those users call the thing on the floor that
they toss their rubbish into?  I can't think of that many different
names for it, and they're all similar enough that it's hard to
envisage much genuine confusion (especially as, on the GNOME desktop
at least, we nearly always show a picture of the recepticle we're
talking about as well).

Never mind... am just catching up on a month's worth of mail and have just encountered the susbequent thread about this :)
