It stands for much of the tree outside sci as well (app-mobilephone,
app-emulation, app-accessibility, games-simulation et al.). After much
discussion in the past, probably on -dev, it's just as easy for somebody
to tab-complete one or the other. But one name makes instant sense to
anyone looking at it, and the other requires some thought to figure out.
