I had a crisis meeting at BelHac. The active members of steering
committee (Ian, Duncan, Thomas, Johan) are going to step in (as they
should have earlier) to clarify the state of the concerns about naming,
and identify what, if anything, is being proposed.

Lack of consensus about naming issues for a handful of functions will
just be noted, and set aside, and will not prevent 'text' being added.

I've asked for a far more active steering committee involvement in the
future, as well, to gate the authors and proposers from the flood of
libraries at .
