That is quite possible; I certainly won't discount that. But whether it is
due to bias or not, I still have the opinion that I like "revprop" better
than "rev-prop" :-)


I don't really know a good way to talk about it and eliminate the bias. We
could poll a bazillion users, but it would take a bit to explain the
concept, so I'd doubt that we would have any valuable feedback that way.
So I think we have to deal with what we have :-)
