Plus, if the problem discussed is just naming of some variables in some 
modules that is breaking a commonly decided naming scheme then they can 
be "fixed" by adding those proper variable names and still leaving the old 
variable names for compatibility which will be removed in time (this at least 
should work for the wrong case variables).
