The thread starting at
has some suggestions (and the original name, "inline_everything"),
Alexandre Oliva suggested leafify, but flatten is surely ok, too,
though it is PITA to fix it for me (doesn't matter for the gcc submission,
though, as there cannot be any uses of "leafify" in the world yet. QED.)

My preference would be staying with leafify or maybe changing it to
flatten.  What do the authorities command?
