Why is abbreviation such a long word?

I just launched em — a shortcut for ‘eventmachine’.

6 times less letters, 6 times more happyness.


What is the value of this? Verbose names help developers know a little bit of what a gem actually does and this doesn’t even alias eventmachine so you have to type the same length references in code.

Yay, let’s flood with useless gems.
