When looking at different FOSS tools to make slide presentations, I came across the following:

- s4
- s5
- s9

None of these should be confused with s6 (init system) or s3 (object storage service).

Ok, that's it. We're done with `s$n` as a name – we've _got_ to do better than than that!

(I say, hoping no one will notice I'm the author of _two_ free software projects that use the same uncreative naming scheme: d5 github.com/codesections/d5 and t5 github.com/codesections/t5 )

@codesections it’s like name your thing something discoverable and intuitive and i’ll use the magic power of ~alias~ to shorten it

jq and jc i’m looking at you

Or if you want to save users the "hassle" of creating an alias, you can even have a different name for the executable and the project (e.g., ripgrep provides the `rg` executable)
