    1. We could leave untouched (at least for now) and address the
    style issues, incrementally?

If people are willing to do this, it certainly won't be terribly hard

    2. In general, I recommend to use DNS more fine-grained than we currently
    do, by having,,, and
    so forth; similarily for other projects.

We don't want to have because we want our lists to be, but other names such as and might be a reasonable idea.  I will pass this
suggestion to the savannah people.
