 > we started to unabbreviate everything. I thought the initial idea was to
 fix only apparently bad parameter names, but this is starting to have
 large consequences - changes in scripts, manual pages, and confusing

 with lookup table `old_key:new_key` we can quite easily fix all scripts
 and manual pages. Also parser will understand `old_key` will continue to
 work. We were planned to do cleanup some years ago, this ticket has been
 open 3 months ago. I believe that it will has good consequences at the
 end. We just need to finish the job. That's all.
