That's ridiculous. Which would you rather write?
import the module called "os";
get the attribute named "exists" of the attribute named "path" of the
module called "os";
if it returns a true value when called with argument "myfile":
get the function called "open" and call it with argument "myfile";
get the attribute called "read" of it;
print the result to standard output;
Even by the standards of Apple's (much missed) Hypertalk, that's overly
verbose! Even Hypertalk compromised on perfect English grammar for
brevity and conciseness.

I never suggested that. What I am trying to get across is that long names
are not automatically better than short names, and even one letter names
can be as good or better than long names *when appropriate*.
