[This message is not always serious, but it addresses a real problem.]

A problem with R's present name is that it is not very well suited to
search engines, although Google at least seems to cope as long as you have
sufficient other terms to filter out Toys R Us. Initials remain a problem.

I suppose "R" is just too culty to do away with, but perhaps we could come
up with a longer synonymous name. Meditating on this one day I came up with
a few lengthenings of the name:


(inspired by another package and initials of some of the contributors) 


(Flanders & Swan: "I'm Rgnu")




Finally, and most boringly,  Rstat.
