Wow! I find it a bit excessive that #34605 was not discussed first and got
checked in so quickly. I hope there won't be similar initiatives about
terms such as killing, abortion, daemon, termination, disabled, etc. If
somebody gets offended about these terms being used in computer science
it's entirely their problem.  Trying to make such individuals happy is
useless and a waste of python-dev time.
