I am the author of bagpipe.ly. Good to see someone looking over this
all these years. I choose the "irritating" names a long time ago and used
them without caring much if they represented correct terminology. I will
have a thorough look at the suggested changes as soon as I can,
but they do look reasonable.

I am not sure about what user base we may have for bagpipe.ly, but I
have had contact with some users at least. Extensive renaming of existing
movements can of course easily be implemented by a convert-ly rule,
but updating the user's memory of what to type to get the desired
result is perhaps not quite as simple.
