st: a graph named "new"

This is a very minor issue, but anyway: How come I cannot name a graph "new"?

In Stata 9.2, or an up-to-date Stata 10.1, the following produces an error:

sysuse auto
scatter price mpg, name(new)

The error message is "new invalid member variable identifier" r(198).

This does not depend on the data in memory, or the graph command used.
Note that "ne", "neww", "New" and other variations work just fine. I
can create variables, programs, and locals with the name "new", just
not graphs. I couldn't find anything in the archives, or the manuals,
but maybe I overread something.

Any ideas?
