Re: [PATCH] Replace 'Ternary' with 'Tertiary'

Ternary tends to mean "having three parts", and has other significance in
IT. Using "Tertiary" seems to be a better choice, even though they may
both be used interchangeably (afaict from anyway).

In the Dutch language apparently the equivalent of tertiary is used.

(If you google search for "primair secundair ter.." then it automatically fills into "tertiair" ;-)).

How great my knowledge!.

Personally I would probably just use "Third" unless you want the idiom of Tertiary to be more well known (it is so ill used).
