Then I strongly vote for adding an optional Displayname= or something
like that to the configuration files. I think it is not wise to
identify internal module identifier and screen display name -- these
are two distinct concepts. (All the old modules don't have to be
changed (except for those with ~) because we can use the identifier if
the Displayname is not present.)

Especially when you consider that for some modules, people might like
to use UTF-8 names. I'd prefer to call a German dictionary
"Wörterbuch", instead of having the APIs force me to use the clumsy

"A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not
know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad
people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived
a sheltered life by always giving in."  -- C.S. Lewis
