I don't normally do "me too" postings but this is such 
a big deal that I just have to concur with Steven. It doesn't 
matter too much if you abbreviate local variables but 
anything that might be exposed at the module level 
and visible across imports should be spelled in full. 
It will only cause grief and pain later, if not to you 
then to anyone who imports your code...
