If they are so much not used to English, then how do you justify names 
like [hip~] and [dac~] ?

So you want something guessable by someone in most any language, then do 
your best to support [>] [<] [>=] etc, because that's exactly what you 

So if I understand you correctly, you need something written in English 
for people who can't read English, and is guessable by them because they 
can't use help files and they don't read manuals, and at the same time it 
can't be the symbols that they already know because the filesystems might 
not support the characters that could already be substituted by hexloader 
which might be not loaded, on a system that deprecated non-libdir -lib for 
ideological reasons about how much code should be put per file.

Maybe I should've just say, just figure out how to support special 
characters so that we don't have to hear about elongated names designed 
for people who can't read them.
