That's good news for those working on this.

But this command name is likely to be pronounceable and attractive in
several languages. It is just that I have no idea what they are. As a
Welshman, I must protest at the implicit anglocentrism here that what
looks ugly in English is ugly ipso facto. And the author is a
political scientist too, and should be sensitive to such matters!
