Incidentally, I've always wondered about the politically correct way
of referring to this programming language (and related implementation
in the above-mentioned type system) in academic circles; if I were
writing a paper for submission to an academic journal, should I place
priority on accuracy or propriety?  In general, for what kinds of
publications should I prioritize one criterion over the other?

In general, if a programming language-related term contains what is
generally regarded as a profane word as a component, for what kinds of
written material should I prioritize accuracy vs. propriety?
