The naming is the least of my worries right now. Before you start to rework
the series can we please get the information about:

- what you want to achieve and why

- the design of your approach

so we can avoid staring at another series of 40+ patches just to figure out
that something is wrong at the conceptual level?

We sort out the naming convention once we are done with the above.
