Yes, yes! You're totally right. Keep the module names, but maybe do
a little sum'in-sum'in like this:

   * fs_base : Module for working with a Berkeley DB (bdb) repository.
   * fs_fs : Module for working with a plain file (fsfs) repository.

But then, on second (actually, third) thought, I actually don't care
to see the --fs-type-compliant names at all. Just looks ugly.
