And is the absolute worst suggestion we've had so far.

Some of us have happily used Byron's rc for nearly a decade (others have
used the Plan 9 version for even longer) and the name has worked well
for all that time.

Please just forget about changing the name.  If you want to use it with
another name, you know how to do it.  But the name of the executbale is
rc, and changing that is not worth discussing.
