  In my case, node names may represent any Common Lisp symbol, which can
  be composed of any possible character whatsoever. Any kind of
  shortening may entail name clashes. Plus, like I said, any kind of
  node name tweak (which I'm doing right now) makes it impossible to
  cut'n paste it, and in general makes it less readable / explicit.

  Since there is already a solution for coping with more universal node
  names, I'd like to see it more supported rather than removed.

Resistance is futile. You will be jazzimilated.
