I like Richard's patch best.  I find Richard's point about making names
of object files, etc., match the intuitive names implied by the various
mode-conversion routines compelling, and, I like that we're eliminating
some duplicate code.


I didn't find the name of this variable mnemonic; it took me a bit of
puzzling to figure out what it meant.  How about
material; if you don't like my name, use your original one, or one of
your choosing, without feeling you ought to consult with me.

Please test, and, assuming no problems, apply.
