Static expands to fill the space alloted.

I must say we'd be lost without our naming convention (good old  
fashioned hhg2g), but that's really only practical in a small team of  
folks that are dedicated to a hosting function.  Naming conventions  
make for good shorthand when  you can personify your hosts with  
"what, marvin's down *again*?!*

But when you've got lots of hosts doing lots of functions, and/or you  
have multiple, transient volunteer administrators, numeric  
conventions are easier to learn and reference.

It might be practical to extend that convention to all the drupal  
host functions though, database included.  ( db1 or database1 rather  
than database).  This has bitten us in the past.
