Exactly.  It's a stupidly common term, probably only slightly better 
than calling it "program".

I don't buy into this idea that changing it will break all sorts of 
legacy scripts.  If they are that fragile and undocumented, *get rid of 
them*!  Undocumented fragile code is a liability.  Kill it now, under 
"known" circumstances, and fix it up properly.
