It's a little unfair to describe my proposal as a "major rename".
I suggested moving three code files - that was all.

I'm sure there are.
But there are also tools out there that break.

Historically, the policy of this project has been to (try and) provide
as robust a package as possible - if only to avoid users having to
ask for help on the mailing lists, etc. I'd much rather ship code
that works on as wide a range of systems as possible - we should
adapt to external requirements (where feasible) rather than the
other way round.

I *really* didn't expect this proposal to receive such a barrage of
opposition. Consider it withdrawn.
