    how about this?

    /dev/sd/h0c0t0u0p2

    There. that should make everyone happy...

    first part after the /dev describes the type of device so
    you can have /dev/scd/.... , /dev/sgd

    and preserve all the current names

    I think either /dev/dsk/sd_... or /dev/sd/... are both reasonable choices.

    I am now wondering what the rationale is for using "p" rather than "s" for the
    partition number. I cannot think of any particularly compelling reason for
    either choice. "p" is somewhat more mnemonic, but I find "s" slightly more
    esthetic (since "p" would be the only character with a descender) and it is
    compatible with other systems. So how about:

    /dev/sd/h0c0t0u0s2

    versus

    /dev/dsk/sd_h0c0t0u0s2

    I think I personally would prefer the former.
