Willy,

I agree that this is largely a matter of taste/opinion. However, that doesn't mean I'm above compromise.

To be honest, I used to use similar naming conventions to what you use as well. Then, I discovered the Old OMR Spec, which defined a quite rigid method for naming and describing models. At first, I was a little adverse to it, struggling with it's syntax and mourning the loss of information inherent in my old naming schemes. However, as I learned to use it, I grew on me and I came to value the subtle way it described models using minimalistic naming conventions.

Then, they drew up a new OMR and (apparently) threw out these old conventions. With only the simple statement "A logical naming scheme is highly desired" to guide me, I simply fell back to the old conventions, feeling they were very logicial. This is how I then proceded, until you brought the issue of more descriptive names. Now, I'm conflicted all over again.

I've attempted to combine our two methods as a compromise. However, I by no means think it's perfect. It's a rough draft, which I'm open to changing. I only changed one file, so I'll attach it here. Let me know what you think, and we'll proceed from there.

As a final note, perhaps this is something we should start a new topic for discussing? (Or perhaps an agreeable Admin would be willing to slice this discussion off into a new topic for us.)
