Yes, guilty as charged! Here's an example of my poor taste. Since "find" is
sort of a boolean concept ("I found/didn't find my tennis shoes"), and since the
"find" function really returns the index (position) of a substring, I probably
would have called it "position" or maybe just "pos" (in admiration for BASIC).
