Yes I understand. I think you missed my exchanges with Joey Hess and my
other newer posts.

I retracted this excessive limitations and reiterated my intent to be
"considerate" naming.  I still think that "terminal" is not a good
choice for this package name.  

I think opinion of Colin Walters to be very sensible.  I do understand
reality stated by Florian Weps to be very true but this does not negate
the effort to make the package name space manageable.

That is just my opinion.
