Right. But then again, for that vast majority of linux-users worldwide
that actually are able to understand a word like "target", it is rather
nice to have that shorthand little "t" in there to point out exactly
which of the digits refer to the SCSI-id.

As for English vs. not, what the hell is a "LUN" anyway? Let's keep the
letters, it's a lot simpler than counting digits. Or find a
non-English-speaking person who really insists it would be easier for
*him* not to have the letters present.


If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
