consider a shorter binary name
gnome-text-editor is going to be the new default editor for gnome. And it will replace gedit.
I happen to edit a lot of files in the terminal and more professional users would probably use vim or at least nano but I was simply using gedit for getting that done. E.g. gedit file.txt
Now I don't see me typing gnome-text-editor too often in a row and would suggest to change its binary name to "gted".
It is the reverse problem of kgx. Now kgx is called gnome-console but the binary is still named kgx. But gnome-console is going to profit much less from a short binary name because people probably don't start it often from another terminal. Editing files is rather common on the other hand. I would rather prefer kgx to be gnome-console and gnome-text-editor to be gted on the console.
ED, sED, gEDit, why not gtED? It would fit the Unix way of doing things (have short commands for Unix veterans).
I know about the possibility of creating an alias but I think a short binary command would be a sane default. And not being that well known and documented on the internet yet seems to be a good time to make such a rather drastic change.
