Change "Xfce 4" and "Xfce4" to "Xfce"

Instead of have strings with "Xfce 4" (with space) and "Xfce4" (without space)" would it not be better to just have "Xfce" without a number?


Xfce 4 Calendar Application
Xfce 4 Widgets
Xfce 4 Mount Plugin

Xfce4 Dictionary
Xfce4 Mailwatch Plugin
Xfce4 Power Manager
Xfce4 Sensors
Xfce4 Timer Options

Xfce Bug
Xfce configuration daemon
Xfce Mailwatch
Xfce Notify Daemon
Xfce Panel
Xfce Power Manager
Xfce Session
Xfce Terminal Emulator
Xfce Terminal

If i wont it fixed do i have to create multiple bug reports or can i just make one?

Yes, theoretically would be better.

Practically a rename would cost alot of effort for almost no gain.
And for sure such a change would introduce regressions.

So I would vote for just keeping the "4".

Why a lot of effort?
Its just a few strings
Seems to me like it could not be much easier.

What is regressions?

I'm not a developer; just a user (and a rather ignorant one, at that). Therefore, I'm not clear on what... the reason is for "Xfce" instead of "Xfce4" or vice versa.

But I'd think that there should be some - apologies for lack of the correct term, here; "continuity" is surely not it, but... It seems that there should not be both an "Xfce4" and an "Xfce 4," that it should be one or the other.

It's counter-intuitive. Is that not reason enough?
