Thanks Aaron for posting the notes and Rajan for taking them.

There was mild mangling of what I said, but it is mostly error-correctable
by readers.

I feel that some important points did not translate though. Regarding the
same-versus-different names, this was what I said (I had it written):

> When users use a name in a program, they intend certain semantics -- it
> doesn't help to use the same name for different semantics or use different
> names for the same semantics. Not being consistent in avoiding the
> unhelpful situation*s* leads to proposals that mistake one situation for
> the other.
