i don't agree. i think, if there are messages printed to console at all,
they should be very accurate and use accurate terms. Otherwise more
experienced people would have to translate every message back. 

i don't like the idea of making things appear simple, if they are not. i
still consider pd to be a programming language and in order to deal with
a programming language,  you need to use adequate terminology. i think
it helps everyone and causes confusion less likely (also for beginners),
if terminology is consistent. 

after all, you don't have to care about messages, that are _not_
