Names are not something you can argue about or that you can "improve". Pd's
author called it "Pure Data" and "Pd", so in a scientific paper I would always
use these two names/spellings and I'd consider everything else a research
negligence by the paper's author. In casual communication like here of course
there is more freedom possible.
