James, for heaven's sake, where were you when we ported core? Have you  
said that 'stop, this will confuse users'? We made an error by naming that  
so, and we correct it before spreads.

It confuses people because here post refers to "after" as in "after the  
build is done" and not $_POST.

Why is it so bad to adjust it after it hit core? If it wouldn't do you  
think anyone would have tested a four houndred kilobyte patch?
