Hmm.. A danger of acronyms :-)
Once during development of a big numerical library for a language Xyz
we have been tagging our documentation by XyzNUM- tags. Hundreds
of such words.
And one day a bored person from their marketing department
caused us to change them all to XyzMATH because of possible
association with XyzDUMB. Afraid that global search and replace
would not work properly we had to do it on file by file basis.

I should have thought about it. Thanks. BTW, since I sort of feel
uncomfortable with the NONE business (depending on the context)
I often end up with doing "either not none? any xs " .
