Subject Re: Global Renaming: Let us start!

	The script isn't needed if 2.0 is a major overhaul and mostly
new code, which it perhaps should be. (I haven't looked in detail, but
I'm inclined to base 2.0 on NSPR...)
	At this juncutre I agree with marc and think that HIDE=yes
without telling people how to turn it off is the best choice. But I
don't really know what I'm talking about.
