Probably the simplest thing is just to get used to the abbreviations
pl, pg, ps, pe, pd. If you think of a group of 5 two-letter commands
with a common one-letter prefix, it should be easy to remember it isn't
a common one-letter suffix. Or maybe it's just me. As Jay Ashworth
says, so many things are just me.
