 Hi,

 I feel that having classes with names like S wastes my very limited
 brain ram while reading or writing lift applications. Why not to use
 more describing but longer names? Not wasting bytes on these difficult
 economic times? This might be unfair rant as I didn't find any others,
 but this damn S keeps popping up a lot :D


S == Stateful

Back when I started doing Lift, there were no IDEs, no code completion, and
access to the stateful parts of Lift was common, so I called this S.

If you don't like it:

import net.liftweb.http.{S = SomethingLongerThanS}



 ps. Great framework!
