I must agree with this pov, since like everybody I always want to limit the search for
what is the meaning of some new product when
I can do something more obvious, that is reuse some old good scheme/name that already
This is why I agree with other suggestions already done or suggest some myself that go
in this way :
Since the original product are named respectively : REBOL/Core and REBOL/View
Why don't we simply use them like adding some prefix or suffix to them (like Light or
Base) instead of reinventing the wheel. this
could give us some easy to remember and short things to use ( for refs. too if we only
keep the initials) :
So the use of any of the following suggested names for the new REBOL/Core diminutive
(even instead of REBOL/Base) would be better
for me :
REBOL/LightCore (REBOL/LC) or
* REBOL/CoreLight (REBOL/CL) or * preferred for myself but looks like some commercial
============= the "Coors Light" Beer sold here in
REBOL/BaseCore (REBOL/BC) or
REBOL/CoreBase (REBOL/CB) or * another acceptable alternative...
* REBOL/SmallCore (REBOL/SV) or * another of my preferred - retained for consistency
============= the following /SmallView one.
or in an ultimate renaming try may be I could find "REBOL/Native" as acceptable as is
the new REBOL/Base
appellation suggested by Carl. ==========
And the same vein, the use of any of the following suggested names for the new REBOL/View
diminutive would be better for me :
REBOL/LightView (REBOL/LV) or
* REBOL/ViewLight (REBOL/VL) or * not my preferred one but retained for consistency
============= the above /CoreLight one.
REBOL/BaseView (REBOL/BV) or
REBOL/ViewBase (REBOL/VB) or * an acceptable alternative but this time it looks
like another add for
the Microsoft's VB concurrent . Huh! Huh!
* REBOL/SmallView (REBOL/SV) or * preferred for myself but looks like some commercial
ad for another
============= VISUAL something contender
REBOL/ViewSmall (REBOL/VS) * not my preferred one but retained for consistency
the above /CoreLight one.
or in an ultimate renaming try may be I could find "REBOL/NativeView" or the suggested
name of REBOL/Faces
as acceptables ones to me. but final choice is Carl's privilege I think !
Sorry for the lengthy process ...
