Sure "judgment" is a good thing.

As I posted in separate thread, my intent was to encourage "considerate"
name choice.  I thought it was not considerate to take generic concept
words such as "preferences" or "terminal" only for the GNUstep specific
program.  Also it was not a fun pun on a word either.

It will be quite difficult to manage all these nice GNUstep enhancement
under dselect. (virtual package only helps initial install.)  Some
consistent naming which associate themselves to GNUstep will be good for
the users.

Just my 2 cents.
