We considered a proposal to rename short, int, and long to short, tall, and grande. More thought on this issue is required; we will revisit this issue on Friday.
And yet the notes for the following Friday say nothing of it. Someone dropped the ball.
It’s not too late. I propose in the same vein that we rename float, double and decimal to singleshot, doubleshot and quadrupleshot. byte can be cappuccino. And of course the BigInteger in the new math library can be half double decaffeinated half-caf with a twist of lemon.
