How do you define "good" name. I bet you never will find a name that
is considered "good" by random people lurking on the list. I define
"acceptable" name as a name that is not missleading and nobody raises
honest problems against it.
and the will to find consensus).
I'm not sure that there is such a will - but I refuse to continue
promoting a good concept under a wrong name. That's why we need
some new name - if not with a consensus than with "some general
agreement" or a vote or any other means that might lead to a
result instead of endless discussion which just drains time that
might be spend for coding.
If you push for a fast decision, it's harder to reach consensus.
As I said: I doubt that a consensus can be reached. We just spend
time for hours with this kind of discussion. I would love to code
in this time.
I dont think we are in a hurry. At all.
That's no excuse for not changing anything in a reasonable time
