Uhm, while I would never argue that naming to be unfortunate in
hindsight, despite most of the time actually matching its stated goal...

I blame this one on Alex (the otherwise anonymous $mysqlstudent). He's
been around long enough, by far, to know about this. Just simply and
occasionally glimpsing threads on this list should have told him.

I mean, for once, use this mailing list as a source of wisdom. Most of
us can learn from others' experience. Being subscribed to a mailing list
is not a post-only-if-question medium, but one to read. It's not a
fucking substitute for an easy google search, either.

Or our very own wiki. Ask it for "awl". Can you say AwlWrongWay!?
