I have tp agree on versioncontrol.module.
A descriptive name for a module is an absolute requirement when we  
talk about usability.

Have a look at the support requests on drupal.org how much people  
doesn't grasp that the path.module is for the URL aliasing of nodes,  
because of it's poorly choosen name (this is still a todo on my list,  
to have that renamed to something more descriptive).

So, imo better some larger modulename which is more descriptive, than  
s short makes-no-sense module name.
